Tarring bag snatcher grabbed dog mess

A THIEF got more than he bargained for when he snatched a carrier bag from a woman walking her dog in Tarring.

A black teenager rode a bike past the retired woman at 10.45am on Sunday, March 7, near the Post Office and grabbed the bag, possibly thinking there was something of value inside.

However, little did the thief know the bag actually contained dog mess. The dog walker was not harmed.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0845 6070 999.
