Crime Does Not Pay

Ms. L. Madison writes: In part of an occasional series, we look at some people who have sought to step into the shadows. In this case, the man wanted to make a quick buck, so he got a gun and turned over the local Post Office.

He successfully held up the Post Office, and got away with a large haul. Driving away in his stolen getaway car, he hurried off, hoping that he would lose the Police. As he sped off, he was happy to note that no-one was pursuing him.

But our criminal had missed one thing. His chosen getaway vehicle was a bus. A double-decker bus. The Police caught up with the criminal outside a local chip shop, after he had stopped for Fish and Chips.

Crime Does Not Pay.

The Green Man will be back tomorrow
