According to a report in the Haaretz, Israel's first and oldest daily newspaper, the thief had thousands of pounds worth of pilfered goods in his flat, including Breitling watches, 150 pairs of shoes and Louis Vuitton handbags.

However, there was also a number of other things which were questionable to steal, sealing his fate as someone addicted to the act of theft, including boxes of laundry detergent and bottles of olive oil.

Superintendent Nissim Daudi, head of investigations and intelligence, said of the incident: "Expensive watches, helmets, cosmetics, brand-name handbags, clothes, shoes, detergents, CDs and whole cartons full of video films, as well as alcoholic beverages and food products, were piled up everywhere."

The Haaretz is available in both Hebrew and English and is published and sold together with the world-famous International Herald Tribune.
