Every now and then, we hear stories about thieves getting away after robbing people off their valuable items. It could be money, jewelry, properties or even artwork. Most of the things that got stolen usually have some great value to them. However, there are some thieves that steal maybe just for stealing sake and take even the weirdest things. Here is a list of the top 7 weirdest things ever stolen.
- Albert Einstein’s Brain
One of the greatest minds in the history of man, Albert Einstein was the victim of this very weird robbery. His brain was stolen. I mean, literally. Before his death, Einstein had severally expressed his wish to be cremated with all his body parts intact upon his death. But on April 18, 1955, the unthinkable happened; Einstein’s brain was stolen from his head after his death by a pathologist named Dr. Thomas Stolz Harvey. Harvey then claimed to be carrying out further research on it, releasing several false reports after.

- A Full Bridge
Imagine stealing a full bridge from the road. Who would think of doing that? Well, some guys in Russia did in 2008 and made away with a 200-tonne bridge in Khabarovsk, Eastern Russia. Apparently, the thieves stole the bridge for its metal parts – to be sold in the scrap market. Imagine!
- A Full Front Lawn
So a certain Denise Thompson in the U.S of A had calmly taken her children to visit her husband in the office on bright morning. Only for her to return and find out that her full front lawn had disappeared – with the beautifully tended grasses and flowers. All gone! Just a patch of empty good ‘ol soil remained. She was shocked! Her neighbors said they had seen a trailer and a truck parked in front of the house earlier and thought she hired workers.
- Unborn Cows
In October 1989, California witnessed their own weird robbery. A group of robbers broke into the California Polytechnic University’s dairy building and stole – no, not milk – developing cow embryos worth thousands of dollars. I guess they really wanted some premium cow samples for their upcoming farm.
- Bull Semen
Fast forward to 2016 and another weird one happens again in – yup you guessed it, California. This time, its bull semen, and not just any bull, a prized bull! The thieves made away with almost 3,500 units of bull semen, enough to get about 1000 cow pregnant! From cow embryos to bull semen, these Californians really love their dairy oh.
- A Full Airplane
On September 30, 1956, an ex-US Marine Corps pilot, Thomas Fitzpatrick pulled one of the greatest and weirdest flying stunts ever. By 1 a.m that day, he stole a single engine plane from the Teterboro School of Aeronautics in New Jersey and flew to New York in total darkness and without radio and landed right in the middle of the street. He got wide spread fame from that act.
Two years later, he did the same thing. This time he stole another plane from the same airfield and flew to Amsterdam. He got a 6-month jail sentence for his second stealing spree.
- Just an entire BEACH
A group of guys – or maybe ladies sef, who knows? – got together and decided to steal the biggest thing they could see. The nearby beach! This happened in Jamaica in 2008 when an entire beach was stolen. The 500 truckloads of white powdery beach sand for a new resort in Coral Springs, Jamaica were stolen overnight by hoodlums? Sand lovers? Beach haters? Who knows? All we know is that the sand trucks disappeared and never returned. Maybe Poseidon took it personally sef.
