A shameless thief who brazenly stole charity money by putting a Poppy Appeal tin down his trousers has been jailed.

Hartlepool man Nathan Beddow walked into a quiet pub bar and spotted the charity collection tin and tray of poppies.

Nathan Beddow stole the Poppy Appeal money on November 3rd he walked into a pub at 1pm after he was seen loitering around the bar before he stuffs the tin down the form of his pants

A member of the Royal British Legion then found the empty tun down a nearby alleyway and informed the landlord Mr Jenkinson who believes £70 was stolen having donated £40 himself.

The pubs CCTV captured the moment Beddow then came back into the bar with a friend later to buy a drink.

Nathan Beddow was then identified by thousands of Facebook users after the CCTV image was released online.

Police quickly acted and arrested Beddow who told an officer during his arrest”All this for some poppy money, all you have got is some CCTV.”

When he was arrested he was trying to goad police officers he was put into a police van and on the way to the station tried to put a cord around his neck after slipping his handcuffs.

In an attempt to say sorry and get out of going back to jail Beddow wrote a letter of apology and addressed it to the British Red Cross and not the Royal British Legion, He attempted to go back to the pub and repay the money but was kicked out.

Beddow in his defence claimed that he stole the charity tin because he had been subjected to threats from the English Defence League following his previous offence and was scared “The threats of violence by the EDL may well come back to haunt him. He is not normally someone who targets charity boxes.”
