Stick your hands up, we're after the pork.
Robbers in southern China have started stealing pork because rising prices have made the meat, a staple in the country, so valuable, a newspaper reported Friday.
The Shenzhen Jing newspaper said a peddler was robbed of his motorcycle and load of 125 kilograms (275 pounds) of pork while on his way to a market in Shenzhen, just over the border from Hong Kong.
He was robbed of the motorcycle and the pork by four suspects who rushed from a minibus and threaten him with a knife, according to report.
"They took the pork because it was more expensive than the motorcycle," a local policeman was quoted as saying. Pork prices have risen more than 40 percent over the past year.
The policeman said a stolen motorcycle can be sold for 1,000 yuan (US$132; EUR96), while that amount of pork can be sold for more than 3,000 yuan (US$400; EUR290).
The newspaper said the four robbers were caught.
