Sleepy Guernsey Veg Thefts Increasing

Recommended Posts

He said the level of theft was leading to a drop in hedge veg around the island and he has now closed his farm shop, which had relied on customers’ honesty.

In the old days you could leave your front door open. Guernsey appeared to be immune from the advances of modern living. You could sell your produce from outside your house, people pick up your home grown Veg, and put money in the tin. A sad day when this tradition dies.

Next it starts on the allotments. You'll see trust me.

All those people who have been saying they will grow their own food are going to have a shock as harvest time approaches and everyone is strapped for cash. There are allotments 100 feet from my desk with a main road running past it and a chain link fence... the produce is visible to all and sundry and I expect it will ALL be stolen over the next month.

Was it the Pirhana Brothers?

The Tale Of The Piranha Brothers:

Doug and Dinsdale Piranha were born, on probation, in a small house in Kipling Road, Southwark, the eldest sons in a family of sixteen. Their father Arthur Piranha, a scrap metal dealer and TV quizmaster, was well known to the police and a devout Catholic.

In 1928 he had married Kitty Malone, an up-and-coming East End boxer. Doug was born in February 1929 and Dinsdale two weeks later; and again a week after that.

Someone who remembers them well was their next door neighbour, Mrs April Simnel: "Oh yes Kipling Road was a typical East End Street, people were in and out of each other's houses with each other's property all day. They were a cheery lot. Cheerful and violent.
