TV thief snared returning for aerial


Recommended Posts

A shoplifter stole a television from the Warehouse - but was caught when he returned to steal an aerial. :huh:

Dunedin police Senior Sergeant Craig Brown said CCTV showed the 35-year-old visited the South Dunedin store six times on Friday evening.

He was noticed by store security staff on the sixth visit when he left with the television aerial.

The man then left in a vehicle, but was stopped by police soon after. The aerial and stolen 21-inch LCD television were found in the back of his car.

Mr Brown said: "He's not the sharpest tool in the shed. He should have quit while he was ahead."

Mr Brown said the incident showed the value of security cameras and watchful staff at the Warehouse store.

The man was charged with theft and will appear in the Dunedin District Court this week.
