Police trap criminals with free beer offer.

Hehe! I heard this reported on the radio on Sunday morning - brilliant. The only snag now is that they won't be able to do it again.

There have been similar police stings in the past involving "please collect your raffle prizes" & "free concert tickets".

Needless to say the scam worked and Billy the Burglar was almost shocked out of his white trainers when plod turned up at the venue.

It's only the stupid ones that get caught in the first place,so no surprise these planks thought they were getting something for nothing. ;-).Let's be honest,they probably had feck all else to do,it's not like they would have been at work is it?


Nice touch by the old bill.

Queensman, oh ye of little faith. Never underestimate the stupidity and gullibility as well as greed of the criminal classes. It will work again, OB just needs to wait a bit.

In the pre PC world that we look fondly back on, my wife was a fraud investigator for the Benefits Agency and they were encouraged to get to know the detectives at their local station.

If plod were looking for a local villain who had "vanished" they could give her a ring and she would withhold their Giro's, giving them warning to be outside at such a time to nab said scrote.....

Cracking idea. Sign everybody off the dole every six months and require them to re-sign on a certain date. Back room full of rozzers who may want a quiet chat with one or two deadbeats.

Well, it was in the Telegraph. I can't imagine any of the likely targets read that on a regular basis...
You know I don't know about that. I actually read it in a catalan newspaper, when I went to check it out in the telegraph I had to search. So if the crims on the Costas get word they might spread it back. Mind most don't spak catalan and live more in the south so we may be OK.
