Pretend gun betting shop raider gets 12 months
A BUNGLING armed robber who tried to raid a bookies using just his FINGER has been jailed.
Betting shop worker Mark Thomas froze when he felt a hard object pressed to the side of his head as he counted up the day’s takings.
And unaware it was actually raider Ronald Patterson’s forefinger, Mr Thomas reacted.
Instead of handing over the £13k cash, Mr Thomas refused and forced the 47-year-old thief to the floor.
There was a struggle, during which Patterson was pushed and fell over a chair.
Patterson ran off without any takings but handed himself in at a nearby police station an hour later.
The Old Bailey heard the Coral shop in Dagenham Heathway, Essex, was winding up for the day on Aug 20 when jobless Patterson came in.
Patterson, a former carpenter – who has a string of convictions for burglary, dating back to the 1980s – recently lost his job after the building firm he worked for folded.
Patterson, of no fixed address, admitted attempted robbery and was jailed for 12 months. IT might be cold outside but look on the bright side fellas – chances are you’ll be seeing lots of ladies nipping out, just like these beauties!
