Hapless thieves steal empty cardboard box - twice
A HAPLESS pair of thieves are believed to have repeatedly stolen empty cardboard boxes from a Cirencester store, believing they contained expensive goods.
The thieves were spotted by staff and caught on CCTV stealing two cardboard packages for electronic razors from Boots in Cirencester - once on Thursday, September 20 and again on Friday, September 21.
It is thought the men stole the empty packaging, mistakenly believing twice over it contained the electronic device.
A police spokesman said: “While the razors are worth £300 each, the cardboard boxes are worth considerably less.”
A 30 year-old-man from Swindon was arrested and is due to appear at Cheltenham Magistrates Court on October 26.
