Oh no,I cannot believe that the police are involving themselves with Sainsburys dirty work involving loyalty cards when there are unsolved murders, rapes, violent robberies and assaults still outstanding in the Borough.

If this guy used a loyalty card that did not belong to him is that not fraud, or possiblely theft,or maybe this card was the result of a robbery of some sort, so please stop your consistant attacks on the Police, do you not understand that a criminal offence has taken place and the Police are attempting to solve the crime you really are a "Plank"

43? He looks closer to 83. He could have done with spending the £80 on anti-ageing creams.

Criticism of the police is justified when you consider that there are numerous unsolved murders, rapes vicious assaults. High profile failures, Stephen Lawrence debacle investigation tapering of the elderly, neglect of duty cases and so on and so on. Then we have the self-confessed massaging of crime statistics, the ridiculous goings on with the last two Metropolitan Police Commissioners, being sacked or forced out of office, the suspect wrong doings with the press, phone hacking scandals, failure to act in child sex abuse cases regarding the current operation yew tree and so on and so on.

A fish rots from the head down, leadership of the Police is at it's worse for years and it is only by taking them to task will the public get more accountability.

These low level investigations are part of this new 'joint venture' of investigating petty crime, theft of fuel, theft of money left in cash machines and so on all of which are opportunist crimes often involving neglect by the victims.

I would rather see the limited resources put into investigation of more serious matters.

He could always make a career as a Tony Curtis lookalike to pay off the paltry fine he will receive.
