Teen raiders identified by underwear

TWO teenagers who robbed a newsagent before bragging about it on Facebook were caught due to their underwear being captured on CCTV.

Reece Winfield (18) and Corey Hobson (17) attacked the shopkeeper during the raid in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, before stealing cigarettes and alcohol.

But it was their underwear that helped police to track them down. When they were arrested two days later, they were still wearing the same underwear.

Hobson, of no fixed abode, and Winfield, of Nottingham, were both sentenced to 32 months for robbery and four months for attempted arson at Nottingham Crown Court.

Hobson can be named after the judge agreed to lift restrictions
