Dangerous Baby Food – level 1

26-08-2020 07:00

A man from the UK does something horrible. The man is 45 years old. He wants to make money. He makes a plan.

He puts pieces of metal in jars of baby food. Then, he asks food companies for money. He will tell where the baby food is when he gets the money. Police catch the man on a camera in a Tesco supermarket. The man is placing baby food on shelves. Then he buys flowers and wine. He leaves the supermarket.

He writes emails to Tesco. He asks for money. He wants 1.5 million pounds in bitcoin.

Now, the man is waiting for a trial. He can go to prison for up to 17 years.

Difficult words: jar (a glass container), bitcoin (virtual money), trial (a law process to decide if someone does something that is bad).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
