Armed Dog Mess Mugger is Jailed (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bristol/4974374.stm)

A knife-wielding mugger who robbed a woman of her bags before discovering they were full of dog mess has been jailed for four years.
David Carlisle, 32, forced 52-year-old Marion Budd to hand over the bags at knifepoint last July as she walked her dog in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol.

When he realised what he had taken, Carlisle, a drug addict and father-of -four, fled the scene empty-handed.

The bungling would-be thief was jailed after admitting attempted robbery.

DNA evidence

His four-year sentence will run concurrently with the seven-year term he is already serving for multiple burglaries.

Bristol Magistrates heard Carlisle, of no fixed address, jumped out of a car and thrust the knife at Ms Budd, and ordered her to hand over her bags.

But he dropped the carrriers and ran off after she told him that the contents were less lucrative than he might have hoped.

Carlisle was tracked down after his DNA was found on the car used in the attempted robbery, and was later identified by the dog walker in a video ID parade.

Recorder John Trevaskis told him it was "testament to his incompetence" that he had attempted to steal a bag of dog excrement.

Personally, I wouldn't have told him what was in them :banana:

Exactly the same thing happened to Linda Robson (real name That Blonde One Off Of Birds Of A Feather) a couple of years ago.

Those council dog mess boxes are red in Derby. I posted my PAYE returns and a letter to my sister in one last year by mistake.

As far as the PAYE returns are concerned I certainly hoped so.
