  5. P&J offering £1,000 reward to catch thief who targeted injured pensioner

Press & Journal


Today’s edition of The Press and Journal is offering a £1,000 reward to anyone who can provide information that leads to the arrest and capture of a thief.

The newspaper launched the appeal this morning to help track down a man who stole the wallet – and several hundreds of pounds – from a 71 year-old pensioner who was lying injured in the street.
The Press and Journal Editor-in-Chief, Damian Bates, said: “Every right-minded person will be utterly appalled by this.  If the P&J can help in some small way to catch the culprit then we’ll do everything in our power to do so.  A reward seems a small price to pay to bring the person responsible to justice.”
