Thieves who raided an expensive clothes shop in Rome stood still and pretended to be mannequins when the police arrived - and they nearly got away with it.

The three raiders, aged 78, 70 and 55, broke into the fashion store at 4am and were busy throwing designer brands and leather handbags into sacks when the police arrived.

As officers fanned out, the raiders, dubbed the "grandpa thieves", stood among a group of storefront dummies and remained immobile.

The were not seen at first and police thought they had fled from the store, :huh: in Via Piave in the Sallustiano area of the capital.

Only a small movement by one gave the game away. The three, who were carrying lock-picking devices and were known to the police, were charged with aggravated theft and carrying tools for breaking and entering.
