Man threatens to kill Tesco staff with a PHOTO of a gun

19 November 2014

tesco A man has threatened to kill staff at Tesco in near Cambridge, which is a bit bleak isn't it? However, there was a problem - he was holding a photograph of a gun.

Officers (real ones, not lifesize photocopies) were called to the supermarket after staff told the 999 operators that a man was threatening to kill them all, as well as waving around an image of a firearm.

A force spokeswoman said: "A 34-year-old man from Cambridge was arrested on November 12th on suspicion of making threats to kill. He was released on police bail to return to Parkside police station in Cambridge on January 14, 2015."

A Tesco spokesman said: "This is now a matter for the police and we are helping them with their inquiries".

Now, if you imagine everyone trying to stop themselves from laughing about the man and his photograph of a weapon while making their statements, you're probably somewhere close to the truth of the situation.

On a serious note though, do be careful out there. If there's people doing things like this, then soon, we might see people carrying a photocopy of a massive bomb or something.
