This is a question I witnessed a crime

Freddy Woo writes, "A group of us once staggered home so insensible with drink that we failed to notice someone being killed and buried in a shallow grave not more than 50 yards away. A crime unsolved to this day."

Have you witnessed a crime and done bugger all about it? Or are you a have-a-go hero?
Whatever. Tell us about it...

Working in retail in a DIY shop over the road from a half way house for recovering druggies, i've witnessed many many crimes in the way of shoplifting, from the sublime (blokes wanging chainsaws and hedge clippers over the 30ft fence) to teh rididiculous (the smack head so off his tits he walked up to the checkout, looked around to make sure noone was looking (we all were) and stuffed the booty up his jumper before tiptoeing past chuckling staff, not making eye contact so we couldn't see him (!) That was an easy stop. Irony? He was stealing a burglar alarm

The most scary though was the guy who was stealing brass door handles (shiny so must be worth nicking) who when stopped pulled a syring out and tried to stab me in the neck with it. That wasn't nice. I let him go. Plod caught him, he was well known and the description / cctv did the trick.

Thing is, he came back in a few months later, and i recognised him. Before stopping him this time i got a few lads together before getting him. Suffice it to say he left the store this time a little worse for wear, and didn't come back.

More stories for another post i think.
