DISPENSARY CORNER 2 JUNE 2016

WHEN it comes to shop lifting
we never thought heavy duty
incontinence pads would be a hot
item to steal.
Thieves in Leith, Scotland don’t
seem to agree with us on that one
though.
The pads were being stolen
from the town’s Tesco on such a
regular basis they had to be fitted
with heavy-duty anti-theft alarms.
A siren will go off if someone
tries to smuggle the goods out of
the store without paying.
Sure, you might spot these
alarms on a bottle of Dom
Pérignon or a luxury leather
jacket, but adult nappies?
We’re baffled too and the official
comment from Tesco doesn’t
provide much help.
“Our store managers take
appropriate security measures
based on the needs of the store,”
they said.
