A time and a place

There’s a time and a place for anonymity, but one place that isn’t is in a shop. Now I am sure that the owner of a local off-licence from which £3000 was burgled in a distraction burglary is very embarrassed about what happened and how it happened (one of a group speaking in unrealistic foreign accents distracted the owner whilst another just walked through to the back of the shop and took the money, with it all captured on CCTV) but his wish, as reported in the local newspaper, to remain anonymous is not likely to last long. It’s a small off-licence, not part of a chain, and is both named and pictured in the newspaper article. Unless he emigrates now, most locals will know exactly who he is.
