A NIGHT-TIME intruder has been caught on camera emptying the contents of seven charity tins at a Hampshire garden centre.

The previous night the same man had broken into Allington Nurseries in Allington Lane, Fair Oak, with an accomplice.

The charity collection tin thefts are the third break-in in just ten days at the premises.

On two previous occasions £600 worth of fireworks and three dummy fireworks were stolen.

During the latest burglary the hoodie wearing thief spent more than 20 minutes helping himself to handfuls of change, destined for charities including the Poppy Appeal and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Garden centre boss Stephen Goodridge, 50, said: "It looked as if he had done it before because he knew how to take the boxes apart.

"After filling his pockets he put the boxes together again and put them back on the counter. He was a very tidy burglar. People usually put one, two or five pences into the charity boxes so there would have been between £10 and £15 in each one.

"For the Poppy Appeal it is sometimes one or two pound coins so there could have been a lot more in those."

The other stolen charity collection tins were for the PDSA, Great Ormond Street for Children, Save the Tigers and Dr Barnardos.

Altogether an estimated £115 was taken.

If this no mark scumbag is going for fireworks as well as RBL boxes I suggest that some sapper types booby the firework stock and then we can all enjoy the security video of the thief's demise as a "Live Fawkes" - it would bring a new meaning to the phrase "Penny for the guy" Let him burn!

I hope they catch him and the scum gets everything he deserves.

Tied to a Catherine Wheel would be favourite, perhaps with a lump of PE for a rousing finale...

Having said that... I wouldn't mind being tied to a few Catherines I know...

I think you've got something there. I'd put up a hefty RBL donation to see a thieving scumbag set alight!

I am appalled by the reactionary and draconian posts regarding this case. Like a pack of hounds baying for blood. Frankly you should be ashamed of yourselves.

This is almost certainly a young lad who has had no guidance whatsoever in his life, minimal education and probably has a drug or alcohol problem. He may have been abused and was certainly neglected by his parents. Kids like this are often in a very precarious housing situation, being one short step from homelessness and have no means of earning a living other than crime.

Calls to have him dismembered or mutilated are utterly despicable and ressemble the sadistic rantings of a gangster or paramilitary enforcer.

A prison sentence will only compound this lads problems. What he clearly needs is community service.



In Afghanistan.

With the Grenadier Guards.

Doing ammo and water resupply to forward platoons.

And some mine clearing.

Under the personal 24hr supervision of a large Fijian.

Who has been carefully briefed about this young man's offending behaviour and his personal role in the delinquents rehabilitation.....

Mine clearing is a very challenging technical task.

It requires specialist tools, like the Mk 1 Clearer, Mines (penal battalion issue).

Every year we hear these stories. These little b@stards still rob from charity boxes because they know that in Broon's Britain(TM) there is little chance of them being hunted, let alone caught.

Even if by some miracle they did get caught there are a hundred lawyers lining up to explain how hard life has been, how badly treated he was at school (when they were brave enough to attend) and how Mummy beat them, and Daddy abused them before running off with the local hooker.

Net result is one b@stard being let off and given charity for stealing from charity.

grumble grumble, moan moan, death's too good for them...

hung , drawn and fukcing quartered would be too good. maybe a bit of chemical castration.
Liberal. Why waste good chemicals when a pair of perfectly servicable bricks could be used?

This arrsehole wants finding and then nailling to a tree. I could live with him stealling from the shop, (all be it with grated teeth*) but this crosses a very big line.

Scum.

* actually, no I couldn't i would want to see him whipped down the street.... and tasered.

Might I suggest future employment for this mouth breathing oxygen thief as part of the butts party on the 81mm Mortar Range. :twisted:

Failing that the tried and true methods are the best

This I like.

Can we not rename 'National Service' to 'Community Service' ?

6 months at a holiday camp type establishment doing say team building excercises and things like that (Oh PT, Drill, Weapon Training and the like)

Followed by 6 months on a Foreign Holiday, Somewhere nice like Iraq or Afgainstain perhaps?

Followed by a job offer for a further 6 years for those that show promise, and possibly further 'holidays'

All paid for by the tax payer of course.

Value for money that.

I Prefer my thieving scumbags not to be fit or tooled up and trained to use it properly. Slow rub down with a cheese grater and for second offence forced to read all of the posts of Frenchperson or Goodkurtz before being given as Plaything to MDN.
