Desná ski resort. Was it this lift?
Desná ski resort. Was it this lift?

Who in the hell steals an entire chair?  Hard core Czech dudes, that’s who…

According to the Prague Daily Monitor, an entire ski lift has been stolen in the Northern Bohemian town of Desná in the Czech Republic on May 7th, 2012.  Yeah, the whole damn thing…

The steel support structures, three posts, a pulley, and a 1.0 kilometer long cable were taken.

Desná looks nice. Hope they try to steal this thing.

The stolen lift must be smallerish as it was only netted to worth 200,000 crowns or $10,236.64 USD.

We’re pretty sure that the police are somewhat amused by this, but they are also investigating the theft thoroughly.  They’re trying to figure out if the thieves are gonna use the lift somewhere else or if they’re gonna just dismantle it and sell the parts.

This theft carries a sentence of up to 5 years in prison.

Worth it tho.  Imagine having your own, private, free ski lift.  We applaud this action!  …no, no we don’t.

Desná, Czech Republic is on the big red “A”
