Racist shop thief told security guard ‘You just bomb the place’ in shocking tirade of abuse

A racist shop thief shouted You just bomb the place at a security guard when he was caught stealing buffalo burgers. Jeffrey Carr also said He shouldn t be in this country he should go back to his country during the shocking rant inside an Iceland store, in Newcastle1. A court was told that the 55-year-old, who was described by his own solicitor as Hopeless and helpless at the time, launched the tirade of abuse towards the security guard when he was detained after trying to steal the burgers.

But, when police arrived, they charged him not only with the shop theft but also with a racially aggravated public order offence, charges to which he has now pleaded guilty. During a hearing at North Tyneside Magistrates Court2, District Judge Sarah Griffiths said it was astonishing people still used such vile language.

An Iceland store

Reading through the details of the case, the judge added: He s in a shop and seen by a security guard taking burgers . He s challenged about it and initially just swears at him and says f*** you .

However, later when the police arrived, he makes a comment about the security guard and says he shouldn t even be in this country.

He then says He needs to go back to his country . He shouldn t be here, they just bomb the place . The court was told the offences happened on April 24 this year at an Iceland store in Newcastle.

Giving Carr, of Wilfred Street, Byker, an eight-week community order, with an eight-week curfew, as well as ordering him to pay 85 compensation, District Judge Griffiths said: In this day and age, this behaviour is completely unacceptable.

It s astonishing people still use such language, he should be ashamed . It has to stop.

In a statement, the security guard said: I expect an element of dislike towards me because of my job but I don t appreciate racism. Andy O Hanlon, mitigating, said Carr was now extremely remorseful and apologetic for his actions.

The solicitor added: At the time, he was homeless, hopeless and helpless .

He was drinking to heavily and the most important fact was he was not getting his medication.

He s suffered from mental health issues all his adult life.

Asda shoplifter jailed after chasing supermarket security guard with knife

A shoplifter who chased after a supermarket security guard with a knife when he was caught stealing booze has been locked-up. John Spedding was spotted pocketing a bottle of sambuca from Asda, in Hebburn1, and was followed out of the store by the guard. But when he was confronted outside and asked for the alcohol back, the 22-year-old pulled out a Stanley knife and chased the security guard down nearby Aln Street.

The terrified worker told police his life flashed before his eyes as he feared he would be stabbed if he was caught.

Newcastle Crown Court2 heard Spedding came to within a metre of the guard before stopping his pursuit after he was distracted by someone he knew. The police were called and Spedding was aggressive and violent with officers before biting one of them on the leg, prosecutors said. Now, the thief, of Bishop Crescent, Jarrow, has been jailed for 18 months after he admitted threatening a person with a bladed article, theft and assaulting a police officer.

Paul Rowland, prosecuting, said Spedding was spotted picking-up the sambuca and leaving the Asda store on the afternoon of September 5 this year. The guard followed him outside and asked for the alcohol back when he discovered him hiding behind a vehicle in the car park. Mr Rowland said: At that point, the defendant placed the bottle on the ground and removed a craft or Stanley knife from his left pocket and the blade was showing and he said f****** come one then .

The security guard was terrified . He simply said to the defendant Keep it, keep it , referring to the alcohol . But, the defendant began to advance towards him .

At that point, the security guard began to run away.

He ran along Aln street to try and get away from the defendant . He did turn around at one point and saw the defendant still chasing him with the knife in his hand about 1m from him.

The court was told Spedding was then distracted by someone he knew and stopped the chase, allowing the security guard to run back to the store and alert the police. But, officers were already on their way to the scene after being called by a concerned member of public and Spedding was arrested in a nearby park, where he d tried to dump the knife and booze.

Mr Rowland said Spedding then lashed out while being restrained and bit a police officer s leg when he was taken to a cell at the police station. Locking him up, Judge Amanda Rippon said: You were drunk at the time you committed this offence and you not only produced a knife but you chased your victim, who was doing no more than his duty as a security guard, down a public street, in full view of members of the public.

In a victim statement he said this left him shaken up, his life flashed before his eyes and he genuinely believed, not surprisingly, if you caught him, and you got within a meter of him, that you would have stabbed him. Vic Laffey, mitigating, said Spedding was drunk at the time and was now remorseful.

He added; He does not recall an awful lot about the incident because of the alcohol situation .

He has expressed a desire to apologise to those he has caused distress to as a result of the incident.
