Burglar’s a silly fuel!
A BURGLAR was nicked after his getaway car ran out of PETROL.
Dumb Danny Stewart ran to a nearby Tesco to fill up a jerry can — where he was caught on CCTV.
A member of staff also recognised him as having previously worked at a car valeting firm nearby and told police.
Stewart, 19, was then spotted with four others and swag from the house they’d burgled filling up his Renault Clio.
The bungling fool had even gone looking for cash to pay for the petrol, taking 50p from a drunk man by a phone box.
In all the gang nicked items worth £6,600 and caused £920 worth of damage, Southend Crown Court heard.
Stewart, from Leigh-onSea, Essex, denied burglary but was found guilty. He was bailed for sentencing in October.
