A stupid thief in the United Kingdom, stole from a lawyer who represented him in court.
The sticky-fingered thief stole his attorney’s cellphone during a court appearance.
25-year-old Bobby Heath of Kent, was at the Bexley Magistrates’ Court to plead guilty to possession of cannabis, driving without insurance and other driving violations.
Heath was ordered to pay fees of £335 ($475) and he received six points on his driver’s license for motoring offenses.
However, instead of leaving the courthouse, Heath was arrested again after being accused of stealing Charlotte
Johnson’s £300 ($426) Samsung phone.
The attorney placed the cellphone on a window sill while discussing the payment of fines following his guilty pleas.
After arresting the suspected thief, Bexley Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) wrote on Twitter: “Bobby Heath, 25, of Strood, Kent, has just been charged with stealing his barrister’s mobile phone at Bexley Magistrates’ Court.”
