Waitrose Meat Thief Arrested

A man was arrested this afternoon after apparently trying to steal meat from Waitrose. The police were called just before a quarter to three and questioned the man who had allegedly been caught by Waitrose staff.

The police questioned him on site until around a quarter past three when two more officers arrived with a van to take him away. He was led out in handcuffs to the van and driven away.

Waitrose has suffered a spate of meat thefts over the past year or so and the blog understands there is one main culprit responsible for much of it. Although I cannot confirm if this chap is the same one.

Unfortunately, it is a persistent minority that cause a disproportionate amount crime and the associated costs to local businesses and all of us in the form of increased insurance premiums. This man will tried in court and if found guilty I am sure will sentenced accordingly.

I was in Waitrose a few months back and witnessed a couple of low life filling a granny shopping trolley with meat, pointed it out to the manager who politely requested they empty the trolley and leave the shop. Good to see these people being arrested.
