A British man who was caught on a closed-circuit security TV stealing a urinal from a pub in Hampshire, England has surrendered himself to the police.

The unidentified 42-year-old man surrendered to the Salisbury police and returned the urinal.

The unusual case generated a lot of publicity in Britain when the man took the urinal from the Royal Oak pub in Southampton, England as a "souvenir."

The police returned the urinal to the pub and the owner was delighted to have it back.

Alan Dreja told the police he was happy to have the urinal back in his pub, although he is planning to put it on display instead of returning it to its original place.

He told the BBC, "The publicity which surrounded the theft seems to have flushed him out."

The police gave the man a warning and told him not to commit the same crime again.
