Manchester Police Can’t Identify CCTV Thief

caught-stealing-cctv-cameraIN Greater Manchester – the imperial powerhouse of the North – a thief is stealing a CCTV camera.

That’s him with the missing front teeth, climbing a ladder to steal a £1,000 CCTV camera from the Trafford Retail Park.

He’s Britain’s “daftest thief”. What a wally. The police must take about a minute catching him. Well, no. The idiot has confounded minds at the thickish blue line. The raid took place about a year ago, and whether from embarrassment or desperation, the cops have only now released his likeness.

A spokesman for Peel Holdings, which owns the retail park, tells us:

“The police have so far had no luck in tracing him. The camera itself was worth about £1,000, and the suspect got away with the equipment after breaking in through fencing and climbing a ladder. Someone must know this man. He’s quite distinctive.”

But the question on every coppers’ lips is: Is he a celebrity?

Not yet. He needs to steal a few more cameras before the Celebrity Police Force can nick him…
