Alfreton in Derbyshire is causing a stir with the magnitude of its latest crime wave.

A thief was caught stealing a teaspoon from a Tesco store after he said he had been considering buying a cutlery set for his mother.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Monday, November 24, how Hayden Walker, 23, of Rodgers Lane, Alfreton, was seen removing the spoon and then dumping the cutlery set on another shelf.

I assume he wanted the spoon for mixing heroin, prior to injecting.

Cynicism is preferable to perplexity.

Sam - or he's an avid collector of unbranded teaspoons.

Storm in a teaspoon?

The quality of mercy is not strained.

James - as it was Tesco I suppose we should call it horse in a teaspoon.

Demetrius - if it was we'd end up with all the tea leaves.
