Wrenching the truth

The Christchurch Court News reported last month that a policeman had become a little mixed up.

A 51-year-old unemployed Woolston man had been caught shoplifting from a hardware store and, according to the officer's report, one of the alleged stolen items was a set of wenches valued at $302.

While the alleged offender laughed in the dock, Judge Joanna Maze gave the senior constable permission to change the wording to a set of wrenches.

Apparently, the shoplifter joined in the PC's discomfort by calling out, 'I’ll never tell you where they are.'

Hopefully this picture will explain the difference and help the police officer with his search.
