You may come across the R. Whites advert with The Secret Lemonade Drinker. In the series of adverts featuring Julian Chagrin (and the voice of Elvis Costello’s dad), you see how he craves a glass of the fizzy drink at 2am. Similarly, you may have come across what is known as petty pilfering. This goes beyond nicking a few chocolates; it has piqued Manhattan actor Joe Cummings. He has installed a CCTV system in his kitchen.

Over a short time, he noticed how the contents of his fridge were going down. He blamed his girlfriend who denied any involvement. On setting up the CCTV system, it turned out that another woman was raiding the fridge freezer and the cupboards. She found her way through a secret passage.

On his YouTube channel, Joe said: “I have no idea, the only way she could have gotten in is through the window, as I am on the top floor and there is a fire escape.

“The police think she was probably coming in to rob me when I was gone and decided to stow away in the crawl space. Supposedly this isn’t the first time the cops had come across something like this.”

Here’s the creepy video clip.
