Apparently this woman has stolen from several people in the park recently she wears numerous coloured wigs and its not funny when a crime is committed. What do we want the police to ignore all petty crime as if they did it would spiral out of control. Well done Sussex Police for being proactive and letting the community know about this woman

It seems you can trust no one nowadays. I would be inclined to set up a "sting" operation and when caught in the act make a citizens arrest and call the Police.

Unfortunately you would most likley end up in court yourself for illegally detaining someone or infringing their human rights assuming you don't get stabbed first.
