Police in Trondheim armed themselves on Saturday and launched a major operation, looking for a suspected robber in a grocery store.

According to news bureau NTB, several witnesses had seen a masked person with a firearm entering the store.

Arriving at the scene, police found a festive gathering known as an utdrikningslag, a sort of “bachelor party” for a groom (or a bride, in Norway) just before they’re getting married. Parties of this kind often involve large quantities of alcohol, aiming to make the groom (and sometimes the bride) roaring drunk. It’s common that guests at an utdrikningslag parties make their groom- or bride-to-be carry out bizarre or outrageous acts.

The Trondheim police were not amused, telling the partymakers never to do that again. staff
