Gozo – Warren Vella from Gozo has recently been discovered to be the reason for the mysterious disappearance of so many people’s socks.
“I had no idea that someone was sneaking into my house and taking my socks!” A victim of the thief stated horrified. “He even took my favorite pink ones with cats on them.”
Warren’s family member reported sorrowfully, “He told us that he was living in an apartment, but when we visited, it was empty. Seems he’s been on the run, stealing socks, for a long time now. It is so distressing to know that such a seemingly sweet, kind person could do something so unspeakable.”
According to the research of the officials, Warren has some very high-tech tools that he uses to silently break into people’s houses and steal their beloved socks.
“It’s a wonder how he’s been getting into so many people’s houses unnoticed,” a detective told our microphone. “He tiptoes into their homes and grabs all the socks he can find. I reckon we’ll catch him soon.”
All sock owners in the area are advised to keep their socks well hidden in a safe or some other secure place to prevent them from being stolen.
