Save money - leave your girlfriend in prison!

A German man left his girlfriend in prison rather than pay her €225 fine. Magdalena Czerwinska was sentenced to 15 days in prison for theft but was told she could pay a fine instead. But when she called her boyfriend to pay the fine on her behalf, he refused.

A German police spokesman said: "People are very worried in the current economic climate and they have to make whatever savings they can. He saw not paying the fine as a simple saving."

It is not clear if Schuster and Czerwinska will stay together when she gets out of prison.
