Bungling Basildon Tesco robber attemps to steal a car... but ends up with a sandwich
1:17pm Thursday 13th February 2014 in Echo News
A BUNGLING robber attempted to steal a car... but ended up with just a sandwich.
He demanded the victim hand over his car keys and any cash he had, but then punched the vehicle owner before running off.
The suspect then stole a bag from the car, which just contained a sandwich.
The wanted man is described as white, aged 18 to 23, with stubble.
DC Andy Rowley, of Basildon CID, said: "At the time that this happened the petrol station shop was shut but this is close to the main Tesco store which is open 24 hours and I am hoping some late night shoppers might have witnessed this incident or seen the men responsible in the area at the relevant time.”
Witnesses should call 101.
