Police are investigating a “reverse” robbery at a Waitrose supermarket in Cardiff after five men reportedly broke into the store and left affordable items on the shelves…
One witness, Fifi said the robbers shouted obscenities such as “cheaper than Poundland” and “Pocket the difference? I could buy Tesco’s Finest Range now” at the manager before driving off in a car that was later identified by the Police as a Ford Escort 1.6i Sports Edition Lx.
She said a tannoy announcement ordered the closure of the aisle, at about 11:00 BST so that Waitrose’s pretentious customers would not accidentally stumble across the items.
Conrad, a regular customer said “I went down the aisle before it was closed off and found milk, eggs, bread, tofu, horseradish, Potato Dauphinoise, Lobster, Beef Châteaubriand and other everyday items at less than the usual prices” When Conrad was asked what he meant by “less than usual prices” he continued “Well, too be honest I’m not sure how much milk is, but I’m sure it shouldn’t be that much?”
Police are working with Waitrose to identify and capture the gang as soon so that these crimes do not spread to other stores.
Conrad is receiving therapy.
