article imagePolice Like It When The Burglar Writes His Name On The Wall

By KJ Mullins     Sep 7, 2007 in Crime
Peter Addison made the job of identifying him as the burglar at Toc H centre in Adlington, Cheshire by writing his name on the walls. Addison and friend Mark Ridgeway worked over the children's building by writing on the walls and smashing crockery.
The two were seen in Macclesfield Magistrates' Court where they both plead guilty according to the BBC. Addison was ordered to pay £725 compensation and £20 costs. Ridgeway has to pay £20 costs. Ridgeway also has to do 60 hours of community service. Addison's release is only conditional at this time.
Addison left plenty of clues for the police to find not only him but his gang as well at the camp. The Adlington Massiv! and his own name had places on the walls.
Some of the additional notes that Addison left are:
Garden Birds of Britain poster by adding "R Gay".
"thanks for the stay" written as a message to the owners
The police only had to list his name on the computer database to be able to nab their man.
Inspector Gareth Woods, of Cheshire Police, said: "This crime is up there with the dumbest of all in the criminal league table.
"There are some pretty stupid criminals around, but to leave your own name at the scene of the crime takes the biscuit.
"The daftness of this lad certainly made our job a lot easier."
