A businessman has been arrested after parading an employee he suspected of stealing along a busy shopping street with a sign saying "thief" hanging around his neck.Tut, tut! Fancy humiliating a person like that? It's wicked, so it is. Doesn't he realise that thieves have human rights?
Mr Cremer, 44, took matters into his own hands after discovering that an employee had allegedly stolen a business cheque, forged his signature and cashed it for £845 before going on holiday to Cyprus.Of course, Mr Cremer will have been thinking 'A thief, caught bang to rights! I'm doing my civic duty'.
Although he believed the stunt, designed to shame the man, constituted a form of citizen's arrest, he found himself under arrest himself alongside three other fitters who helped him.
While the police thought 'Score! Five arrests and we don't even have to get off our backsides or leave the station! Suckers...'
I say 'five' because surely they arrested the thief too...? The report doesn't say, but we haven't sunk that low.
