Rose Devlin & Denise Egan’s theft attempt goes wrongNovember 23rd, 2011 - 7:52 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Manchester, Nov 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Dummy’s guide to rob a supermarket: fuel your getaway car before the attempt! The police arrested a pair who stole £400 worth of alcohol and realized later that they have no fuel. Interestingly, the police had to wait four months later to arrest the couple.
Police say 59-year-old Rose Devlin and 52-year-old Denise Egan were caught on the CCTV camera pushing their vehicle from the parking lot of Asda in Chadderton, Greater Manchester last June. The two had earlier walked away from the supermarket with the alcohol but failed to pay for them.
Four months later, they tried a similar trick when one of the suspects distracted the security guard at the supermarket and the other pushed the trolley out of the store. They however ran out of luck when they were caught and handed over to the police.
The pair have been handed two counts of theft each. When they appeared before the Manchester Magistrates’ Court, the pair pleaded guilty to both charges.
Egan was sentenced two years suspended jail term and ordered to pay a compensation of £280. He has also been ordered to pay a cost of £85. Devlin will receive her sentence next month.
