Shoplifter Captured on CCTV had his Name On his Football Jersey

Paul Robert Benson, 24, was caught on CCTV stealing £104.54 worth of produce from a Tesco supermarket in Belfast.

Unfortunately Paul clearly forgot he was wearing a Manchester United shirt with ‘Benson 22′ printed on the back of it.

He made a quick getaway after realising he had been spotted by staff, however when police reviewed the CCTV footage they realised Benson had given them the best clue they could ask for.

Benson was soon arrested and pleaded guilty to theft last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.
District Judge, Mr Mervyn Bates, berated Benson by saying he may as well have had a ‘neon sign’ identifying himself while committing the theft.

He was given a 12 month probation order.
