On Monday, South Africa Live shared a video on Facebook that had South Africans confused as hell.
The clip shows a blue vehicle pulling up to the sidewalk of a house. A man then gets out of the car and heads to the trunk to open it.
Next, he picked up one rubbish bin and carefully put it into the vehicle's trunk. The thug goes back for the second bin, putting it next to the first before forcing the trunk shut. He then takes the last rubbish bin and puts it on the backseat before getting into the car himself.
"When you're addicted to stealing," the video was captioned.
South Africans were left baffled by the clip - some could not understand why the thug would steal rubbish bins while others had their own theories.
Lopez Molaba commented:
"It is a new municipal vehicle, don't worry. They'll return the bins once emptied."
Bubele Dudumashe added:
"Something is inside those bins."
Tembisa Vitshima wrote:
"Talk about one man's trash being one man's treasure, literally."
