Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Burglar mistakes video camera for a torch and filmed his raid.
A burglar was caught red-handed after accidentally filming a break in on his
mobile phone. He had thought he had switched on a torch on his iPhone during
the night-time burglary but mistakenly recorded the raid on its camera device.
Judge John Potter was told that the defendant still protested his innocence
despite the irrefutable evidence. Still protesting his innocence despite video
proof? Would you say he is Britain's dumbest criminal. No unfortunately we can
do better! How about the thick burglar
who was jailed for six years after leaving his passport, mobile and keys at his
place of work ie the poor persons house. His abandoned backpack also contained
his mug-shot on a prison ID card, his birth certificate and a tenancy agreement
with his signature. He has got to be one of the UK’s dumbest crooks. But the best has to be the teenager who has been
dubbed Britain’s stupidest burglar after he stole from his next door neighbour.
He was caught minutes later when his victim looked across his lawn and saw the
thief wearing his jumper and jeans and tuning his flatscreen TV. The police,
who were able to recover most of the stolen belongings including the 42-inch
telly, Sky HD box, a Freeview box and camera. Other items stolen included
jewellery, an iPod, a shaving set, an alarm clock, CDs, DVDs, Christmas
presents including children’s toys and cash including £100 in banknotes and even
took a cider bottle filled with five pence coins worth around £60. Who says
