It’s ten o’clock. Do you know where your granny is?
Two white-haired pensioners, suspected of stealing a purse from a student’s handbag, have been caught on CCTV in Sunderland /PA. The grannies were seen laughing to themselves moments before a student’s purse was stolen at a train station. The white-haired pensioners, one with a bandaged ankle, are seen holding on to each other for support as they shuffle along the platform at Sunderland. They may have tried to cover their tracks by handing in the bag, reports the Mirror.
PC Gavin Alcorn, of British Transport Police, said: “The student had left her bag for a few minutes and the elderly ladies saw it and brought it into to our office. When the girl came back to look for the bag she came to us and checked her possessions. She told us her student ID, Malaysian driving licence and a small amount of cash had been taken. We would like to speak to these ladies regarding the incident. They had just got off a train from Newcastle. It is a very unusual case but I don’t think it is the start of a campaign by older members of the public. We’ve never had anything like this before.”
