Warning from shop hero
A SHOPKEEPER from Cheltenham who made a citizen's arrest on a suspected thief has urged fellow vigilantes to exercise caution.
Oli Burroughs, who works at Cheltenham Kitchener, in Montpellier, was praised by police after detaining a suspected shoplifter, grabbing him and shouting "citizen's arrest", last Wednesday.
The man was arrested on suspicion of theft when police arrived at the scene minutes later.
However, Oli said anyone thinking of copying his actions should be careful.
