There’s losing your random pair of goggles at a swim meet, then there’s the much bigger case of an entire shipment of goggles being stolen from its delivery point. According to local media, thieves in the United Kingdom made off with approximately 40,000 pairs of Zoggs swimming goggles, estimated to have a collective worth of £700,000 ($874,000).
The crime happened in the early morning hours of Monday, March 13th in the village of Wednesfield, a historic village and residential area within the city of Wolverhampton, West Midlands, UK. The 4 perpetrators had previously stolen a tractor cab, which were then seen using on CCTV to drive off with a trailer containing the Zoggs.
