Anthony Worrall Thompson - Caught Shoplifting

TV chef Antony Worrall Thompson caught shoplifting cheese and wine from Tesco FIVE TIMES in 16 days

Celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson has been arrested on suspicion of stealing cheese and wine from a branch of Tesco.
The star of Ready Steady Cook, 60, was caught shoplifting five times in 16 days at a store in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
Worrall Thompson, whose business has been badly affected by the recession, accepted a caution for all five offences
Worrall Thompson was filmed on the store's secret camera using the self-service checkout machines.
He failed to scan the barcodes of some items and sneaked them into a bag before trying to walk out.
Security guards are then said to have stopped father-of-four Worrall Thompson and checked his bags before calling police
Sources told the newspaper the stolen goods were 'relatively low value' and included bottles of wine and cheese.
A source said: 'He was ordering blocks of cheese at the deli counter, taking bottles of wine, then putting some things through the scanner but walking out with the rest.'
The former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star was arrested on suspicion of theft and cautioned.
He was quizzed about shoplifting on five different occasions at the Tesco superstore beginning on December 22.
The other dates he stole goods were December 30, 31, January 5 and January 6.
The chef - whose full name is Henry Antony Cardew Worrall Thompson - has suffered as the downturn hit his businesses.
In 2009 the gourmand was forced to shut the doors of four of his restaurants.
He laid off some 60 staff after Lloyds Banking Group refused to extend his overdraft.
As a result, his company AWT Restaurants was sent spiralling into administration.

Two years ago he was also forced to quit his £1.6million mansion in Henley-on-Thames for a home in High Wycombe.
AWT currently consists of a country pub called The Greyhound, two grill restaurants in Kew and Windsor, and a delicatessen café, the Windsor Larder.
Worrall Thompson was educated at the King’s School, Canterbury, and is the godson of actor Richard Burton.
He is married to Jacinta, his third wife, and has two children. He has a line of branded cookery utensils and gravy mixtures, and is a patron of Forest, the pro-smoking lobby.
He also fundraises for the Conservative Party.
A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: 'We arrested a man from High Wycombe following a report of shoplifting offences.
'The man has been issued with a formal caution for these offences.'

The comments re the above are interesting in that many of them ask why he just got a caution when anyone else (not famous) would have been charged. Justice really does depend on who you are, who you know etc in UK it seems.

Mud sticks, been famous isn't always a good thing even though he was let off with a slap wrist because he is a celeb, we will all now knoe him as a shoplifter, I wouldn't go to one of his restaurants or deli's now after reading about this, will he play the depression/mental stress card I wonder, alot of them do.

Thieving git. He wouldn't like it if we tried to scarper from his restaurants without paying.

No doubt it'll be a mental illness or mid-life crisis or something....

Mind you, l wouldn't call a bottle of wine 'low value' they're at least £6 each these days!
