We will look at the Shop owner who traps knife wielding thief Martin Trimble in shutters leaving him with no option than to chug his stolen bee.
Who is this Martin Trimble? The knife wielding thief who trap by the shop owner whom he went to steal.
He is a 30 year old man from Durham city.
The amateur thief as we chose to call him walked into a convenience store with a knife.
With the help of his improvised weapon, he was able to pick 4 packs of beer.
The 30 year old threatened the shop owner and attempted walking away with his booty.
But the smart shop owner did not allow him to get away with his stolen goods so easily.
He ran outside and closed the door behind the knife wielding thief. He held the door so tied, trapping the suspect inside.
The shop owner “then lowered the storefront shutter in an effort to make sure Trimble couldn’t escape”.
Martin Trimble, the suspect then tried to “avoid capture again by breaking the door free of the shop owner’s grip and trying to slip out before the shutter had fully descended”.
The shutter came so low that Trimble found himself pinned to the ground. His torso was outside and open to the streets.
Martin Trimble had no choice than to chug his stone beer while awaiting his arrest.
Where is Martin Trimble now?
The 30 year old who refused to work, but chose to steal has been sentenced to three years in jail.
He was sentenced this week. Detective Sergeant Paul Mawson from the Durham Constabulary told The Northern Echo that:“It wasn’t the most difficult arrest we have ever made. To be honest, it was an open and shut case.”
