MORE evidence that what remains of Great Britain will miss Scotland when it’s gone as we meet “Scotland’s thickest robber”, Jamie Alexander.

Alexander, 18, broke into his neighbour’s home and stole a jumper.

One hour later, the victim spotted Jamie Alexander, 18, wearing the stripy top. Alexander was seen trying to tune in the 42-inch flat-screen TV he had also stolen, along with a Sky HD receiver and Freeview box. Jason Rendall, from St Ninians, Stirling, phoned the police.

At Stirling Sheriff Court, Alexander admitted thefy.

Says the victim:

“He smashed my living room window using a hammer from my shed. He must have found a key to the back door, which faces his house, and just passed everything over the hedge. He shut my pet dog in the kitchen and took anything he could get his hands on. I walked in the front door after work and noticed there was a hole in the window. There were only cables where the television had been. I went in to the garden, looked at my neighbour’s house and there he was – wearing my jumper and trying to tune in my TV. He was wearing my jeans as well so I knew it was him. I was fizzing mad but even I had to laugh at his stupidity.”


“People find it hilarious but he deserves to go to jail.”

Stripey jumpers all round!
