Have your say

Police are hunting a 6ft shoplifter who snatched some meat before making his getaway – on a girl’s pink bike.

The Leeds outer west neighbourhood policing team are investigating following the incident at the Co-op on Swinnow Road in Bramley on Thursday morning.

Detailing recent “crimes of note”, the team’s Facebook page said: “Theft of meat yesterday morning by an adult male suspect who fled on, of all things, a SMALL PINK and WHITE GIRL’S BIKE.... no we are not kidding.”

The thief cycled off towards the Wellstones area. He was in his mid-30s with short, cropped brown hair and was wearing a grey Adidas top, black trousers and black trainers.

Police said they have obtained CCTV footage but want to hear from anyone with information on 101.

Adrian Armitage is wanted by HMRC.
