A man was arrested for vandalizing merchandise at IKEA.
The 31-year-old man of Denmark, was convicted of vandalizing items at the IKEA in Aalborg.
The man took a wooden pencil from the store, and proceeded to stroll through it and draw men’s private parts on the walls and furniture on display.
“He drew up to 30 pictures of private parts on the walls and shelves throughout the store,” Rikke Poulsen of the North Jutland Police told Berlingske News Bureau.
IKEA staff finally found the vandal who left a trail of obscene images and they called police.
Once captured, the man denied that he was responsible for all of the drawings. He said that his crazy crime was inspired by seeing someone else doing it first.
The man admitted to being behind some of the drawings, but not all 30. He has no criminal record and explained that he did it because he saw similar drawings in IKEA, according to police.
He apologized and said that he regretted his actions, but “that does not change the fact that he committed acts of vandalism,” Poulsen said.
The man received a suspended sentence of 20 days.
