Drunk Man Steals Party Banners to Make ‘Blanket’

A drunk Arkhangelsk resident stole several state and party banners attached to a building to sew a blanket to keep him warm in winter, Interfax reported.

Police confiscated the banners from the man, who confessed to the crime, and were deciding whether to open a criminal case against him, Interfax said late Thursday, citing a police source. The man wasn’t identified.
