This is unbelievable, what is even more unbelievable is that even though he clearly was guilty but got away with it he now is treated as a victim/witness and therefore get all of his travel expenses, food receipts, accommodation costs etc back.

Putting this into perspective- he gets away with STEALING £4330 and gets to keep the motorbike as well as getting money back. its the witnesses that were there all week that have lost money while hes gained.

oh also, the article doesn't mention that inside that green money bag from the safe that was found at his home, there was the filled in banking slip for the £2737 that he had filled in that day....

I just don't know anymore.
