You buy a large magnet on the internet, put some goods in your bag, and try to get out of the store with it. In a Netflix series, it works, and the shopping gates do not close, but two young girls ran into the lamp in the Dutch city of Enschede. They were caught and arrested.
According to Dutch news media Ad, the police are most likely talking about the popular Netflix series ‘Trinkets’. In it, three teenage girls go on a robbery and commit various shop thefts. “The girls were ‘binge-watching’ together and saw in a Netflix series that the alarm gates do not go off if you have a strong magnet with you,” the Dutch police write on Facebook.
The Dutch teenagers went on a raid together with the magnet but still ran into the lamp when the detection gates went down.
Soon they will be able to answer in court for their theft in the association. “It may surprise some people, but not everything you see on Netflix is true,” the police conclude.
