No, not too clever is it, breaking into your local store where he’s probably known and can easily be identified on cctv. Maybe that’s why he was picked up and arrested within a few hours. There really are some stupid people around these days.

A crime’s a crime’s. That could have been the start of much more. If he had got away with it what next.

What a scum bag. People in Beading as well as passing customers rely on that shop. So many of the younger generation think they can just take without paying. Name and shame him. He’s then got to continue living in Brading. If he has an ounce of decency he’ll be ashamed at what he’s done……..but don’t count on it!!

Let’s hope he’ll see sense and realise it’s not worth it.
