Shop-owner distributes posters of shoplifter, police castigate HIM for breaching data law

A furious shop owner who printed 100 posters of a suspected thief was stunned when police ‘told him off’ for breaching data protection laws.

James Callaghan turned DIY detective after the man strolled into his printing shop and allegedly helped himself to a Samsung tablet device while staff were distracted.

The incident was captured in crystal clear CCTV footage, with the suspect even looking up directly at the camera as he placed the £250 device under his jacket.
