Knife-waving knob nabs fat stack of jazz mags

Surrey town shocked by sharp-supported shag-sheet snatch

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

A small hamlet in Surrey has been left reeling after a knife-wielding thief stole a whole top shelf's load of adult magazines.

The masked raider struck the shop cum post office in Gomshall on Tuesday afternoon, the Surrey Advertiser reports. He first demanded money from the shop keeper, who resisted until he was pushed with a stool.

The desperado then grabbed an armful of magazines from the top shelf before hot-footing it towards nearby Goose Green.

Investigating officer Matt Evans told the paper that cops were still trying to piece together what had happened, and were speaking to a number of witnesses.

The cash and jazz mag heist is just the latest bizarre crime to hit the Surrey Hills. Last week a burglar snatched thousands of pounds from the tearooms in Abinger Hammer.

Last September a burglar broke into a house in Redhill and swiped a pack of bacon, except for a single rasher left chillingly draped over the front door handle.

Surrey, while often regarded as a mere dormitory for London, is also renowned as the UK's most wooded county, though that didn't seem to slow down the Gomshall grot-mag grabber. ®
