South Yorks Police con the crims @ xmas !

South Yorkshire police, sent bogus flyers to several crims they wanted to arrest... conning them to be at home during a "delivery slot" ...

Sounds like the episode from The Simpsons where they used a similar ruse to get people to pay parking tickets by offering them a free boat... Grin

Local fuzz down here had a better idea once... they rang crims up telling them they'd won free booze at the local off licence! Needless to say they had a very high arrest rate!

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

How about a day of 'pick your own' at the local cannabis plantation?
