Former Liverpool player arrested for shoplifting: Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson are innocent
‘Former Liverpool full-back’ Andrea Dossena, 33, has been arrested on suspicion of shoplifting. The Italian, currently running out for Leyton Orient in League One, was arested along with a 31-year-old woman for allegely shoplifting at Harrods, the Knightsbridge superstore.
Metropolitan Police state:
“Police arrested a 33-year-old male and a 31-year-old woman on April 7 on suspicion of shoplifting at Harrods. They were taken to a west London police station. Both the man and woman have been bailed to a date in late April, pending further enquiries.”
He’s not the first man who have worn Liverpool red to have shoplited:
“I grabbed a few pens and paper from Woolworths and made a dash for the door but the security guard grabbed me. I thought it was all over. I thought the club would drop me. And I was convinced the school would expel me.”
And, of course, the greatest of them all…
“The biggest one was the toilet seat,” he says. “I was with a mate who was doing up his bathroom and he wanted to buy a set where you get everything together. I’d never bought a bathroom like that in my life, and neither had he, so we banged it on the trolley. But we took out the toilet seat and got another one that had a slow-close lid so it wouldn’t trap his kid’s fingers.
“What we didn’t know was that it was £2.35 more than the one that should have been in the box. Then we went through the till, my mate paid for it and then this security guy stopped us and said he had been watching us on CCTV and seen us swapping the toilet seats.”
