Woman in a wheelchair steals – level 1

06-02-2015 07:00

This happens at a petrol station in England. A small shop is in part of the petrol station.

A woman is in there. She sits in a wheelchair. Her partner pushes the wheelchair. They come to a shelf when something shocking happens. The woman stands up! A security camera films this.

The woman looks around. She puts some goods under her coat. Her partner puts some goods into her bag, too. They do not pay for these things. They steal them.

Difficult words: wheelchair (a special chair which can move; a chair for a person who cannot walk), shelf (place for goods in a shop), goods (things in a shop which you can buy).

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