Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The surprising thing is it took 4 hours to get him out - must be a lockable door to take out clothing.
Can't find a link but it was in Bristol.

It was a Red Cross charity bin. No doubt there is a key-holder who empties it periodically.
Were it me, unless the thief was in danger (the report mentioned a similar event resulted in the suffocation of a trapped thief) I would be in no hurry to open it...
