Amazing what they sell in the "Middle Aisle " at Aldi. :lol:

Maybe too identifiable to sell, so buried to dispose? They could have just left them on the owners doorstep instead. :Thinking:

Good job the finder was honest! :thumbsup:

If he'd have tried to sell those, he could have ended up being suspected as an accomplice in the burglary! :shock:

He was honest, but the finds being in an Asda bag might have given him pause for thought about his future actions :D The likelihood of its being half inched were high, but I get the impression he'd have handed it in anyway - he comes across as that sort of bloke. I understand he's refused a rewards from the owner, which speaks volumes :thumbsup:
