Woman in a wheelchair steals – level 2

06-02-2015 07:00

A security camera video from a shop in a petrol station in England shows a woman in a wheelchair. Her accomplice pushed her to a shelf and then she stood up from the wheelchair.

The woman looked around and started putting goods under her coat while her partner put some more in her backpack.

The pair managed to steal meat products worth about 60 pounds. Police look for the couple.

Difficult words: shelf (a long flat narrow board for things in a shop), accomplice (a person who helps a criminal to do something wrong), goods (products).

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