Hunt for Worthing "poo thief"

First published in News by

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."

The crime took place at 10.45am on Sunday.

The suspect was described as a black teenager.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sussex Police on 0845 6070999.

as we're on the subject - Can ANYONE explain why some dog walkers bag their dog poo and either throw it BACK on the ground from where they picked it up (madness) or hang it up on a branch or fence?
they do nothing but make things worse

Nothing of value? No no.

The dog was actually a very special dog. The thief on the bike, a mint condition Raleigh Chopper with cardboard in the spokes to make a noise, was in actualy fact a time traveller from the year 2056. He came back in time to steal the dog's DNA as this dog will later develop the ability to see the future, and the power of speech. A valuable dog i'm sure you'll agree. So the time-travelling toerag wanted to clone the dog and take it to the future. That is what happened.

Thats just out of ordure...

What a terrific story. What will the charge be if they get him then? They'd have to show he intended to permanently deprive her of the bag, which I think would be hard to prove. I expect he's fenced it already.
