Briefly: Auto-balancing skateboards, incorrectly but widely known as hoverboards, are this year’s must-have novelty toys for people bored of their selfie sticks. But it would seem they also have use for shoplifters who can’t be bothered to walk. London’s Metropolitan Police published a video of a young male shoplifting a case of Lucozade energy drink from a supermarket in south-west London. The crime is not significant in any way, apart from that the suspect rolls in and makes his escape on an LED-illuminated hoverboard. The video has since been taken down, but we managed to grab this screenshot. Welcome to 2015, everyone.
