‘Pond life’ steal fruit

A DISABLED man has branded thieves who stole shopping from his mobility scooter “pond life”

A DISABLED man has branded thieves who stole shopping from his mobility scooter “pond life”.

Chris Cowley said the offenders stole a bunch of six bananas while he was in the Oxfam shop in Market Place, Henley, at about 10.30am on Thursday last week.

Mr Cowley, 57, of St Mark’s Road, Henley, said he had bought the fruit from the market and left it in the front basket of his scooter.

He said: “Stealing is a very low thing to do. Stealing is opportunistic but stealing from somebody you know is disabled is a bit like stealing from a pram. I think the thieves are pond life.”

Mr Cowley needs the scooter due to the side effects of a bone marrow transplant in 2012 which left him with mobility problems. He was given the transplant after being diagnosed with leukaemia.
