Man charged with stealing "entire road"

A 40-year-old Russian man faces up to two years in prison after admitting that he stole a road.

Eighty-two reinforced slabs of concrete went missing from the route between remote Parcheg and the Vychegda River in Russia's Komi Republic, according to a report in RIA Novosti. The unnamed man was pulled over, his truck laden with 200,000 rubles-worth of the stolen material; the Russian Interior ministry believes he used an industrial manipulator to accomplish the feat.
