While ransacking three high schools in Guangzhou, a thief wrote a message on a blackboard to students, telling them not to believe what their teachers say.
Surnamed Li, the 22-year-old man took cash, identity cards, and other property worth thousands of yuan from around 80 classrooms.
He left this message in one of the rooms: “All that is taught by teachers is wrong. Self-study is the key,” according to Southern Capital.
The man was eventually apprehended in Nanjing after being filmed by a security camera, and sentenced to over four years in jail.
