Police Are Looking For ‘Game Of Thrones’ Fans Who Stole Prop Swords

Don’t buy your swords from BIG SWORD like a coward; steal them like a (wo)man.

Police in Australia are looking for the “three dark knights” who heisted three suits of armor, two mannequins, a shield, and 11 swords from the Cloc Musical Theatre. Unfortunately (?), none of the booty is real — they’re all realistic looking props worth a few thousand bucks — but officials are taking the sword-napping very seriously. “Have you seen a trio of aspiring thespians/thieves re-enacting a scene from Game of Thrones with rather realistic costumes?” they wrote in a statement, yet again profiling diehards of the HBO fantasy series for something they didn’t do.

It was obviously a skilled team of Dragonheart fans. And yet:

According to a CLOC press release, police think that the people responsible “could be teenagers with a interest in medieval fantasies, such as the popular Game of Thrones book series and television programme.” (Via)

There aren’t enough heists these days. Yes, every so often an enterprising criminal will take some Pappy Van Winkle bourbon or precious jewels. But, most of the time, the only thing stolen is your mom’s HBO GO password, which is probably what these dorks are doing right now.
