Yesterday, Monday 1st April 2020, a male around 20 years of age came into the Spar in Coatshill Avenue, Blantyre wearing a hoodie up. He then stole 3 bottles of alcohol before making off.
Staff observed what was happening and gave chase, managing to catch up on him, enough time to retrieve the bottles. Angry, the cowardly lowlife then pulled out a long screwdriver. Words were exchanged before he gave up and ran off.
Spar staff were left shaken by the incident and police were called. The shop has now commenced a policy no longer allowing hooded customers. They told us, “We are fine thankfully. The good thing is these idiots are few are far between. We have a brilliant customer base here in Coatshill.”
