Hunt for Worthing "poo thief"

A bag-snatcher on a bicycle pinched a bag of poo from an elderly dog-walker in Worthing.

The thief rode past the pensioner near the Post Office in High Street, Tarring, and grabbed a bag she had been using to clean up after her dog.

A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: "A male on his pushbike came past her and snatched the bag, perhaps thinking that there was something of value inside.

"The lady was not harmed and clearly the thief stole nothing of value."

“I hope he reached right in there without looking....”

Or, he had a wicked cold and stopped up nose, thought “Mmmmm...pate for lunch.”

Later it was recovered on a front porch, but it was on fire.

Sooo... An elderly lady is walking her dog and carrying a small bag, and this guy has no clue what might be in the bag? It’s another member of the World’s Dumbest Criminals Club.

Well, it doesn’t matter if they catch him, he still got his just deserts.

But wait! He could make a job of it and start charging people to steal their dog duty.

Nah, can’t do that and still be in the WDCC.

Criminals are not noted for their impulse control skills.

This is a standard issue Urban Legend. Newspapers that continue to propagate myths as "quirky news" do journalism a disservice.
