Back when I was a little kid, the main characters on TV shows always seemed to get locked in supermarkets overnight and it looked like it was the best time ever. Pretty sure it happened in ‘Rugrats’, ‘Party of Five’ and ‘Dawson’s Creek’.

Anyway, that could pretty much never happen now because everyone has a mobile – unless you actually planned it, like these two youngsters from East Kilbride. The 12 and 13 year olds hid in the clothing department of a Sainsbury’s supermarket before roaming the aisles and stealing £300 worth of food and drink and other products before they were finally discovered.
A source said the following:
It was the early hours in the morning when they were discovered by one of the night workers down an aisle.
The two boys had worked their way through hundreds of pounds worth of food and alcohol and helped themselves to various other products before being discovered.
No security is on after 10pm and a few night workers are mostly working in the same area as a small group rather than being spread around, hence why it took so long to discover the boys.
Pretty badass moves from those kids. Apparently a £35 camera (budget?) and two memory cards were missing after a stock take following the discovery and police have now launched a theft investigation, but I’m not sure how these kids could have broken out with those items after they were caught. Surely the night workers would have searched them before allowing them back out after their rampage? You would think so, but maybe they are actually that dumb.
Anyway, respect to the kids for living the reality of a dream that most of us will never experience. Bummer they got caught though.
