All bets are off in lawless Sainsbury's...
Sainsbury’s used to have a respectable image but it seems as though it’s now become something more akin to the Wild West. News reaches us that one of their stores has employed a man who was banned from ALL of their supermarkets after he was convicted of repeatedly targeting them and nicking a £36.79 bottle of Jack Daniels.
Undeterred, and determined to get his Sainsbury’s fix, 24-year-old applied for a job in their Warren Heath branch (it’s in Ipswich)… and got it. Eventually, some bright spark realised that the bloke they’d employed was the same bloke who was on the naughty list and gave him his marching orders.
A spokesperson said: “Mr Patel was convicted of crimes and banned from all our stores a year ago. He neglected to mention his banning or conviction on his application form or at the subsequent interview and as soon as this came to our attention we rescinded his job offer.”
Phew! But that’s not all! Up in the Sainsbury’s in Shafton, Barnsley, their cardboard policeman, PC Bobb (no, us neither) has been nicked, with photos of him appearing on various social networking sites. Are the two stories linked? Who knows.
Have YOU ever committed a crime in your local Sainsbury’s? Or have you even travelled hundreds of miles to commit a crime in a non-local one? Come on – it’s time to fess up once and for all.
