Crime tip: When stealing a cell phone don’t give your name and address to the owner

Peter Gamblin, 24, answered [the] phone he had taken just hours before and gave… his personal details in an ”act of bravado.”

At Lincoln Crown Court Gamblin, a former England under-16 billiard champion, from Lincoln, Lincs., denied the robbery, claiming he was at his sister’s house.

But a jury took just 25 minutes to convict him.

What relevance the fact that he was a former billiards champion has, I’m not sure but the reporter stuck it in there.
