OriginEdit

Kempton Cannon Bunton (April 1904 – 1976) was a disabled British pensioner who apparently stole Francisco Goya's painting Portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London in 1961. Angered that he had to pay for his tv license from his meager income while the British government spent £140,000 ($390,000) to keep a painting, he planned on stealing it. Knowing when the security systems would be offline for maintenance, he pried the painting from the wall and left. He asked for £140,000 for the poor and pardon for the theft, although neither demand was met.

Four years later, he returned the painting through a baggage claim and then surrendered himself. The fact that an elderly, overweight man with little experience supposedly stole the painting surprised the prosecutors. Since he had no intent to keep the painting and returned it, he was convicted of the theft of the frame and sentenced to only to a three months sentence.

EffectsEdit

The user will be able to steal one priceless object without attracting suspicion. All personnel will be distracted, alarms will be offline and cameras will malfunction during the theft. After, the user will become guilty of the theft and will return the object to its owners, later placing themselves in custody for sentence.
