Steal a bell with ears plugged.
 
Chinese original: 掩耳盗铃

A bell is used to alert people . A dumb thief committed robbery with his ears plugged, thinking that if he couldn’t hear it, no one else would.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing 
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.” 
― Rumi

“Little Willie, full of glee,
Put radium in grandma’s tea.
Now he thinks it quite a lark
To see her shining in the dark.”
