Other people's modern gadgets are proving simply too much temptation for half of all 15 year olds

Watch out.....there’s a Swedish teen about!

Every second 15 year old has stolen something in the past year, according to a new report by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention

7,500 teenagers took part in the survey. Mobile phones, keys and MP3 players are thought to be most at risk of disappearing.

But there is some good news, researchers say fewer Swedish teens are thieves now compared to a decade ago, when 66 per cent were pinching things.
