    UK - Overcome by remorse (while reading & eating a kebab) bookshop bandit dials 999

    Caught 'read' handed: Drunk breaks into bookshop and settles
    down with Yellow Pages ad classic Fly Fishing by JR Hartley
    (Daily Mail)
    ---
    After stealing some 1 coins, [Clive] Crittenden settled down to read the book which was immortalised in the popular 1983 Yellow Pages TV advertisement.

    [Mr. Books owner Mark] Richardson added: He actually said to the police he was sitting in my shop reading Fly Fishing by JR Hartley.

    I think they thought he was taking the mickey at first but there is actually a copy right by the phone.

    Its a book that Ive had in the window before because it symbolises that I can get anything for you. His choice of book adds to the bizarreness of the whole situation.
