              Update to the story:-


              He's been sacked.

              Apparently, his claim was unbelivable.

                Oh good, they normally keep bent cops on until it becomes so ridiculous the most of the public start ridiculing them.

                Whilst i agree the supermarkets abuse their customers (and staff) with self checkout this is clearly fraudulent activity.
