A grandfather  chased down a shop thief and dumped him in a chest freezer along with frozen pizzas until police arrived.

Mick Hegney, 53, spotted Romanian Ioan Constatint, 37, snatch a woman’s purse while at the supermarket.

Mick said: “When I saw him slip the purse into his coat, that was it. “I asked him what he thought he was doing and he tried to give it to me.

“I chased him, grabbed him by the lapels, pushed him into the freezer and told him to keep still.”

Police arrived at the Morrisons in Tamworth, Staffs– Great Britain 10 minutes later.

Constatint, of Coventry, was jailed for eight weeks at Burton magistrates court after he admitted theft.

Dad-of-three Mick got a letter of thanks from police and said the woman had been buying flowers for her daughter’s grave.

He added: “To have her purse stolen would’ve made a bad day worse.”

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
