LONDON -- Two men from London have been sentenced to 27 months behind bars for a string of ambitious condom machine robberies. The brazen pair began their crime spree on Valentine’s Day last year.

Bradley Alan Shipp, 26, and John Edward Gill, 24, targeted condom vending machines in hotels, clubs and pubs across South Wales. According to local press reports, the arrests followed an intensive six-month investigation. In all, the two thieves were said to have made off with some £2,000 ($3,200).

Both Shipp and Gill have previous convictions for theft.
