I was shopping in the coop on Saturday and put a £5.50 bottle of wine in my bag, and a £2.00 approx in my pocket. I then changed my mind and took out the £5.50 when I was stopped and taken into the managers office. I hadn’t gone out of the shop at that moment or past the checkouts as I had turned around, but admitted it had been my intention to steal the bottle. He then asked me if I had anything else and I owned up the the small bottle in my pocket. He asked me if I’d done it before and I said yes. He asked me if it was my first time and I said no. I gave him my name and address because he wanted to put in writing that I was banned from the shop for life. I’m sure they will now look on the cameras from before Friday and they will probably be able to see when I have done it.
