The Birmingham Live website reports that a pair of ‘modern day Fagins’ ran a team of shoplifters targeting retail shops in Birmingham and then sold the stolen items on eBay.

Partners Nicola Wilcox and David Carroll took a huge bounty of stock from a six-strong group of thieves and are estimated to have made more than £40,000 over two years.

Carroll stored the stolen booty at his workplace before Wilcox collected the goods and uploaded them for sale online as “new with tags”.
