That’s when good Neighbours…

Sometimes, a barefaced crime is the easiest to get away with.

Not in this case, mind.

Maidenhead Advertiser, 4 October 2010 (story):

Bungling burglar stole neighbour’s curtains for his home

It was curtains for a burglar who was rumbled after he stole his next door neighbour’s nets and put them up in his own window.

Jason Williams was caught out when his neighbours spotted the curtains and asked why he had got them.

The 38-year-old was jailed for burglary for two years and five months at Reading Crown Court on Friday for the crime, which his own barrister described as ‘not very sophisticated’.

He broke down boarding on the home and stole the net curtains, tools, two glass ashtrays and some lamb steaks from the freezer.

Perhaps he just wasn’t barefaced enough; he should’ve put the lamb steaks in the ashtrays and left them on the window sill between the curtains and the glass.  He’ll know for next time.

  1. And why do you think I’ve never had you to stay in Bristol? That pen you shed so many tears over has pride of place on our mantel. I may be seeing you this week (but not you me.) depends what’s filling your fridge. I do love a lamb steak.

    Brazen as you like..
