Daniel Ciamara of Blackburn, Lancashire, England, took a Blu-ray player and a supply of movies to a computer shop and offered them for sale. David Harrison was the clerk on duty and looked through the collection. He noticed that the movies looked very familiar, because he owned every one of them, including two that have never been opened.
Ciamara was told the shop would be interested in buying but said the Blu-ray player would have to be tested.
“Mr Harrison went home and discovered his back door had been kicked in and his house had been burgled,” said Mrs White.
“The police were informed and when the defendant came to collect his money they were waiting.”
