Really – what kind of idiot mugs someone in full light of day when they’re a) just round the corner from the local nick and b) next to a butchers where blokes with scary knives work?

I’m pretty fed up today. I was in Royal Hill mere minutes before all the excitement above happened (around 2.30pm) and missed it all. I have to rely on this photo by – well, given the filmstock, let’s just call him ‘Shaw Taylor’ – who kept ‘em peeled and joined the small group of people who witnessed the aforesaid idiot snatch a mobile phone, get chased by a whole bunch of people including Drings staff, get caught, get nicked and get bundled up into a police van within minutes.

    It is true, I was on my day off popped into the shop to pick up some food and just as I was getting in my car the mugger was running up royal hill chased by a PC, tried to trip him up, failed, then gave chase with PC until the mugger fell over and he was cuffed. Glad to be of assistance.

    That’s one burger-ler who didn’t expect to meat his match. He’ll be facing the chop after such a ham fisted robberey. He made a right pigs ear of it.

    His goose is cooked now.

    Let’s not mince our words, Mr Dring had a butcher’s, didn’t chicken out and hared it down the road (a joint effort with the old Bill)

    I hear the thief has been on the lamb for a few years. No doubt, he’ll be telling porkies during his police interview.

    A lot of theft is drug-related so, if he is an addict, he’ll be doing cold turkey in prison before long.
