Fagin-style thief uses five-year-old boy to steal mobile phone in Bromley store – Telegraph.co.uk
A Fagin-style thief used a small child to do his dirty work for him in a mobile phone robbery.
The scene, like something from a modern-day Oliver Twist, happened in a candle shop.
Police have released CCTV footage of theÂ young boy being used to steal a Samsung Galaxy phone.
The 16-second clip shows the boy, believed to be about five years old, and a man at the shop in Bromley, south-east London.
Officers were called to The Candle Shop in The Glades shopping centre at 4.50pm on August 30.
