A criminal genius who posed as a ‘legless’ beggar, fleeced people of hundreds of dollars every month until his recent capture in Shenzhen, China.
In the photos below, the beggar appeared to struggle as he slid his way through crowded streets but his bulky waist and over-sized clothes sparked the curiosity of some eagle-eyed bystanders. They cornered him in an alley and ask him to strip. As they expected, the beggar had two functioning legs and could stand and walk properly.
The police was invited and the suspected was arrested. Upon interrogation, the suspect revealed that he made roughly 10,000 yuan ($1500) from the Con every month.
