We've heard of five-finger discounts, but this is just gross.

A New Zealand man has been accused of swiping toes from a human corpse on display in a traveling exhibition.

The unnamed 28-year-old "entered intimated guilty pleas" on charges of stealing two deceased human toes and improperly interfering with the dead body of an unknown person, according to Reuters.

The May 4 heist took place at the Body Worlds Vital exhibition in Auckland and somehow, authorities have put a dollar value on the toes.

And, you guessed it — they're worth an arm and a leg.

These dearest of digits have an estimated value of $5,500.
