Thick thief pockets fake phone, Romford

A clueless thief won’t be able to phone a friend for help after stealing a fake mobile from an electronics store last week.

The thick thief stole a dummy Blackberry from Carphone Warehouse in The Liberty, Romford, on Saturday August 27.

The shoplifter, described as an Asian male, around 30-years-old, 5ft 8in tall and wearing a black Adidas jacket, nicked the display-only phone just before 4pm.
