Dancing thief – level 2

04-08-2016 07:00

In Birmingham, England, Police released a video of a 31-year-old man who took a wallet from a parked car.

The police could not believe it when they saw the video. The thief was so happy when he found a fifty-pound note in a stolen wallet that he did a little dance.  He was happy when he found the money, but he looked very miserable when the police knocked on the door to arrest him.

In the past, the man already did shoplifting and other little crimes. Now, he will spend two weeks in prison.

Difficult words: note (paper money), miserable (very unhappy), shoplifting (stealing from a shop).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
