a flaming disgrace! thief hides his lighter behind a cash register then burns through the cord on a charity box, stashes it inside his coat and flees
It was a shocking moment when a thief stole a charity box from under the nose of shop workers by burning off the safety line connected to the counter. The cunning swindler blocked a lighter behind the cash register screen at the E-Steam store in Merseyside Butel, so his behavior would not be seen. CCTV then showed him using flames to melt the wires during a conversation with shop workers in an incident around 6: 20 p. m. on Tuesday. The man in the red hat can see him leaning against the counter, holding a lighter in his right hand and looking at the items for sale with his left hand. He then picked up an item and when he took the lighter to the Dog Trust charity box, it was handed over to the store staff as a distraction. Then the man lit the flame on the rope attached to the charity box. The rope was burned and the man had to put off the flame with his finger and had been talking to the shop worker all the time. Even a small cloud of smoke can be seen from where the wires are burned. The thief then went slightly to the charity box and looked around to see if he was awake before the store staff left the counter. The man stuffed the yellow charity box into his big jacket and this time he showed his face to the CCTV camera again. He strolled around the store for a while before leaving. The video was originally posted at the Lost and Found place on the Liverpool Facebook page, which read: \"The dog believes in the chair box stolen by this lovely gentleman. Stanley Road, a staff member at bootle\'a shop, confirmed that it was a dog Trust charity box with the words \"He burned the rope he tied to the cashier \". \"Steam reduction officials commented.
