Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A THIEV­ING PR boss who tar­geted wealthy gym mem­bers in a year-long crime spree is fac­ing jail.

Max Flower, 34, prowled the ex­clu­sive Vir­gin Ac­tive health club in the City and ri­fled through lock­ers as wealthy bankers and ex­ec­u­tives worked out.

Flower grabbed wal­lets, iphones, lap­tops and other de­signer goods worth £3,875.

City of London mag­is­trates heard he was caught by a gym mem­ber as he tried to pocket a wal­let and Gucci watch.

PR and mar­ket­ing man­ager Flower, of Wim­ble­don, South-west London, ad­mit­ted nine counts of theft and asked for a fur­ther four to be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion.

He also ad­mit­ted pos­ses­sion of co­caine and heroin and was com­mit­ted to the Old Bai­ley for sen­tence on a date to be fixed.
