Thieves ransacking store were caught OUT – before one escapes and is hit by car


One brave Tesco staff tried to thwart two crooks stealing booze and tobacco before one was hit by a car as he fled the scene.


One customer in the busy London store filmed the shocking moment on her mobile phone as one of the two thieves was trapped momentarily behind the tills.

The two thieves, clad in black, got behind the checkout area and started loading bottles of spirits and packs of rolling tobacco into their bags.


One appears to escape with no difficulty, but the second gets trapped temporarily by a combination of customers, Tesco employees and security.

As he eventually wrestles his way out, after some bottles fell out the hold all and shattered on the floor, one customer can be heard saying: ‘Call an ambulance, he’s just been hit by a car.’

The two-minute video begins with voices urging people to ‘go, go, go,’ and ‘call the police’.

Footage shows the area behind the till where the two thieves can be seen piling alcohol into their bags.

The first thief manages to leave the Express store, in Wanstead High Street, with no hinderance, but his accomplice can be seen struggling to get back out from behind the tills as a brave customer holds the door shut.
