An OAP crime wave is washing across Sussex. Hundreds of pensioners and elderly residents across the county have been arrested on suspicion of theft, fraud, assault and serious sexual offences.Oh, and what’s causing this?
A sudden uptick in the number of crimes (thanks, Labour!) for which one can be arrested? A sudden deterioration in the quality of our police farce (thanks again, Labour!) to the point where they will only turn up if they are sure of a result and sure they won’t get a kicking?
Nah, can’t be either of those things…
Experts claimed the harsh economic climate could have pushed pensioners into crime.Oh. Right.
A 94-year-old woman was the oldest person arrested by Sussex Police in the last three years. The woman, who was arrested on suspicion of a theft in 2009, was one of two ninety-year-old plus ladies arrested by the force.Clearly, this ‘harsh economic climate’ is capable of afflicting people in the past!
Maybe the old girl’s a witch? Should we see if she floats?
