Crook shows cop stolen TV

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A CROOK was ar­rested af­ter he showed a cop a photo of a STOLEN TV on his mo­bile phone.

Kirk Holt had been pulled over by po­lice in his home­town of Mar­gate, Kent, and was quizzed about where he had got his mo­bile phone.

The 21-year-old – who is known to of­fi­cers – said he would prove the phone was his by flick­ing through fam­ily pho­tos, Mar­gate JPS heard last week.

One of the pho­tos showed a TV that had been stolen from Aldi just hours ear­lier on Septem­ber 15 last year.

The court heard how Holt had pinched the 19-inch TV dur­ing a shoplift­ing spree in which he also stole booze and af­ter­shave.

Holt ad­mit­ted two charges of theft and was jailed for 15 months, sus­pended for 18 months, given a three-month cur­few and tagged.
