Beijing: The Linshui county in China's Sichuan province had been tackling with a theft problem for some months. Residents of the villages in the region kept complaining to the police about their chickens and ducks being repeatedly stolen.

However, when the police investigated the case, they stumbled upon something, or someone totally unexpected.

Poultry theft is not something one usually associates with a wealthy man, and certainly not someone who owns a luxury BMW car. But that bubble was burst in this case.

An affluent 50 year old farmer, who ran into financial trouble, started engaging in petty crimes. In fact, he started stealing chickens and ducks from villagers in Linshui, in order to afford fuel for his luxury BMW car worth $290,000 (Rs 2 crores approx).

Once the police started investigating, they came across a footage of a man parking his bike outside houses and stealing poultry. However, the evidence wasn't strong enough for the police to take action.

Later, they received information about several poultry dealers lining up outside the house of the accused. When he was called in for questioning, the man managed to escape in his BMW. "He was driving a luxury car, and it was much faster than ours, and we couldn't catch up to him on the highway," Yuan City Police Station director Zhang Hua told reporters.

Finally, once the house of the man was searched by the police, not only did they find stolen chickens and ducks, but also the bike which was used for the crime. He was later arrested, after which he revealed that he needed money to buy fuel for his "thirsty" BMW.
