Birmingham Thief Raided Bookmakers With Garden Shears
THIEF of the day, is part-time gardener Leigh Barry, 28, now serving four-and-a-half years for his raid on a Birmingham bookies and other crimes.
In this video, Barry attacks the cash desk with a brick, a plastic chair and finally a pair of garden shears. The plastic screen refuses to break.
Barry then spots the coin tray. He grabs a handful of pound coins and flees, dropping a load of them on the way out.
Barry was jailed for 18 months for the idiotic raid and a further three years due to his part in a bank robbery from June last year.
