Andrew Hennells posted a photo of a knife on Facebook as well as his boast about 'doing Tesco over'

 

An armed robber boasted on Facebook about his plans to raid a supermarket minutes before he was stopped by armed police.

Andrew Hennells, 32, posted a comment on his profile which read: "Doing. Tesco. Over" at 19:25 GMT on 13 February.

Just 15 minutes later, after he had held up the King's Lynn store, police caught Hennells with a knife and £410.

He admitted robbery at Norwich Crown Court.

A member of the public had reported seeing a man demanding cash at the Tesco store before he fled to a nearby pub, Norfolk Police said.

Andrew Hennells admitted carrying a knife and robbing the Tesco store at Norwich Crown Court

 

Sgt Pete Jessop said Hennells's Facebook confession had made it easier to secure a guilty plea.

"It was a bizarre and unusual case," he said. "The pictures and posts on Facebook helped us confirm what we already knew.

"None of this takes away from the seriousness of the crime or the trauma experienced by the victims of the robbery."

Hennells, of Riverview Way, Gaywood, Norfolk, also admitted carrying a knife as an offensive weapon.

He is due to be sentenced on 8th April.

Amazing! I would have thought he could have put up a defence of "not guilty by reason of total stupidity" :tongue_cheek:

 

I think hard labour breaking stones or picking oakum would be beyond this scrote's capabilities

Would he be even capable of  breaking wind, never mind stones?

 

That would probably blow his brains away ....... or what's left of them :D

I have a picture in my mind of him standing at Lands End jumping up and down to catch some wind, before he could break it. :clap: Have you caught one yet or just clapping. :dunce:
