To avoid paying for it, maybe? Seriously, why do you even need to ask? It's not like there's some ceiling on how much it's "ok" to steal from Tesco, is there?

How do they know it's £350 worth of goods if it didn't go through the till? I guess Tesco did a full stock-take following the theft.

Tescos need to update their security camera system. If their stock is that valueable then an upgrade would soon pay for itself.

The two women were white, but what accent did the one use to distract the security guard

To be honest, looking at the provided pictures, it wouldn't surprise me if the trolly was full of alcohol.

Probably scanned through a self-service checkout - it can take a while for staff to react and realise that such a checkout is not working because it has a large unpaid bill left on it. Ultimately, of course, everyone who shops at Tesco picks up the bill.

1st, the trolleys at Tesco, Dibden, do not need £1, 2nd, I've lived on Netley View for 10 years and have never had any problem, in fact they are probably the nicest people you could meet, 3rd the trolleys can not go beyond certain points in the car park so why did security not stop them? They must have had a car and by the looks of the trolley it would have taken a fair amount of time to fill their car boot!,,,

Agreed Snob07, I lived in the waterside are, specifically Netley View, for 20 years, before joining the army. It was never any better or worse than any other area around Southampton. Instead of taking the p1ss, maybe we should be trying to help catch them. As someone else said, we all end up paying for thieving.

Apparently the trolley never left Tesco as the woman was stopped by the security guard,manager and under manager it was only the woman who managed to wriggle out of the security guards grasp and run away. So that's how they know how much shopping was in the trolley.Once again the Echo's report is misleading.
