Home CCTV footage appeared to show an Amazon delivery driver stealing a sink worth £350 from the front garden of Mark Thomas’ parents’ home in December.
Mr Thomas reported the incident to the police, who were given the driver’s name by Amazon in addition to the seemingly incriminating footage.
To his shock, Mr Thomas received a letter this month informing him that the case had been closed as the “details provided by Amazon are not enough to identify a suspect.”
Hmmm, how so?
Surrey police said:
“While we have been provided with details of the courier used by Amazon, we were unable to identify the individual responsible through extensive enquiries into the name and details that the courier provided to Amazon.
“The case has therefore been closed pending further proportionate lines of enquiry.”
There’s only one way to read that, isn’t there?
One wonders, though, how Amazon paid him. Shouldn’t the police liaise with their fellow public servants and find out?
