Burpham supermarket staff duped by cash machine fraudster

Published at 5:03pm 29th June 2017.

A man has tried to steal a bundle of cash from a Burpham supermarket in an audacious incident.

The 48-year-old Londoner walked into the Sainsbury's on Clay Lane, pretending to be an engineer.

He then convinced staff to give him a key to gain entry to the shop's cash machine.

Kevin Primus from Brent, then managed to get hold of a quantity of £10 notes and left.

Fortunately, he was stopped by the store manager and a security guard before he could escape.

Primus admitted fraud and has been given an 18-week prison sentence, suspended for two years.

PC Matt Griffiths, who investigated the incident, said: "Although Primus was extremely convincing with his fake ID, his behaviour aroused the suspicions of staff at Sainsbury's and they acted without hesitation to ensure he did not escape.

"Their quick thinking ensured he was arrested and charged and has been brought to justice for his deception."
