South Wales Police have released CCTV images of a man allegedly stealing an honesty box from a stall outside a farm in Rhossili, near Swansea, as well as taking some cans from a fridge – reports BBC News on July 23 in ‘Honesty box theft caught on CCTV in Rhossili, near Swansea’.
The BBC reports that the box was thought to contain around £20 and five cans of drink were stolen. The stall with the fridge was set up three years ago and sells home grown vegetables as well as ice creams and drinks – with people leaving the money for the products they take.
According to the BBC, CCTV cameras were installed at the farm following a burglary last year. The footage was posted on Facebook as well as passed onto police in an attempt to identify the culprit after other honesty boxes in the area were also stolen.
A spokesperson from AlertSystems said:
“It’s a shame that the reckless and selfish behaviour of one individual could have threatened a service that many people use and enjoy honestly. While we would all like to believe that people are honest, there are the exceptions and a CCTV security system such as this can help identify thieves and ensure they get the punishment they deserve – shaming them in the process.”
