CCTV CAPTURES THIEF STEALING EGG HONESTY BOX FROM COWES MILK

The owners of a popular roadside milk shop have released CCTV images showing a person allegedly stealing an honesty box from the establishment late last night (Thursday).

Cameras have captured the moment the hooded individual entered Cowes Milk, located on the main road between Newport and Cowes, at 22:42.

Once inside the 24-hour pitstop, the individual is alleged to have taken an honesty box used to collect monies for eggs. The theft took a matter of seconds.

It’s said that the perpetrator walked to the shop from the Newport direction.

Cowes Milk say that the shed will be staying cashless from now on and are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.

Where have all the scum suddenly appeared from day after day we read the same news.
Are they sent from other councils for rehousing or are the new generation of parents
unable to control their ferral kids.

As an obvious “when I”, you know absolutely nothing whatsoever about genuine history of Island folk.
You have bigoted views,
When I grow up nobody worried about closing their windows or locking their doors because the island and was an extremely low crime, safe place to live.
It’s the influx since the 40s of “oveners” and people like you, that has raised the crime levels.

Seeing as you obviously hate Island people why in God’s name did you come here, if you don’t like us I suggest you bugger off back to where you came from and good riddance to you.

Yet you live on the Island. No one is keeping you from staying here. Also, I will add. There are good and bad people from all walks of life and area’s. For you to have such a narrow view of people, puts you in lower category. Just my opinion.

I honestly think the Council should be answering this question. Why are we importing so many low-lifes rejected by other Councils? Is it simply down to the cash handed out by the government to take them and, if it is, is that cash worth all the hassle and problems these people bring with them? Personally, I would say no, it’s not worth it.

I know this person may not have been someone who moved here in the past 3 or 4 years but the question is still a valid one, why are we bringing these people here?

Human rights got in the way. If teachers, police, doorman, and parents were still allowed to give people a firm slap you would see less issues like this. There are no consequences even if you get caught stealing.

What has spelling got to do with anything. You knew what the person meant. People who bring up peoples spelling in the way you have usually do so because they have nothing educated to bring to a conversation.

he? The frame of that individual is somewhat slight and judging by the way it is standing, it is could be a female – the baggy jacket could be worn on purpose to cover up physical features.

Karma, is the modern term, for what weak, gutless, people used to say and imagine that God would punish these low lives.

They will just get free rent, free council tax, free handouts for their countless feral brats, scattered far and wide, costing us all a fortune keeping their harem of spray tanned, fake lashes and nails ‘muvers’ in houses across the Island.

They will grow dope and sell it, they will not work and will swindle all their lives and never face the consequences.

There will be no answering to God, Karma, or even courts.

The truth is hard to accept, but they will likely have a better life than you or I.

You obviously know something,instead of throwing insults at people maybe you should grow up and do the right thing,say who it is that stole the money,why should hard working farmers lose out because of someone’s greed,Everyone’s struggling with bills but we’re not all stealing to from others,they should definitely have some sort of repercussion rather than just a slap on the wrist,it’s not even that these days tho there’s no deterrent

Thieving scum or absolutely desperate?
Either way, sadly leaving any money around nowadays only has one outcome and this is it unfortunately.

No police. Makes this wave of lawlessness easy to get away with.
There have been a group of kids riding their bikes on the pavement near weeks road, long meed road and woodland view ryde. They ride on the pavement in woodland view where a lot of retired people live. Also along the dirt road by pig peg lane where a lot of dog walkers go and horses ride. They are putting peoples lives at risk. Many residents of all three roads have reported them to the police. Nothing has happened. One of the bikes I have the number plate is not taxed.

I don’t think anyone can say whether it is Islander’s or “ovener’s” causing all the issues on the Island if anything it is media and technology along with the horrendous new films and TV series just depicting murder, crime etc. along with some of the new degrading/belittling TV series. There just seems to be a very high level of disrespect for everyone including their property. Everything on media seems to need a “shock” aspect lately.
