A 26 year old man has been charged with criminal damage in a restaurant in the Stavanger center late in the Tuesday evening.
Equipped with cutting pliers, skateboard and backpack he made his way into the restaurant through the station, cut the cord on the cash register and left the place on a skateboard, still wearing his backpack.
– Thanks to witness descriptions and thanks to the knowledge of persona in the area among the patrols, he was caught shortly afterwards, leader of operations Brit Randulff in South Western Police District said to the news agency NTB.
It is currently unclear whether the 26 year old managed to steal anything at all  from the premises.
