Crooks ‘bribed security staff to escape from ankle tags

Quote:
DOZENS of crooks are suspected of giving bungs to security staff so they could escape from their ankle tags.

It was feared that workers at suppliers Capita had been paid thousands of pounds to fit the electronic tracker devices too loosely.
Martin Crean's home was reportedly raided and he was also held on suspicion of the theft of tagging equipment

The cons — who were subject to strict court curfews — were able to pull off the tags and go out for the night, fooling the monitoring gear into thinking they were at home.

But the trick was rumbled after one offender was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder when he was meant to be under curfew.
Linky

Curiously, or maybe not, the BBC on R4 this morning are not mentioning that it is Capita that is involved.

Sadly nothing surprises me about Capita.

Re: Crooks ‘bribed security staff to escape from ankle tags

Weren't crapita also billing for tags on dead people or ones sent back to prison? No they weren't, it was G4s and serco, I am pretty sure I remember sodexo being named security company of the year and soon after getting fined for over billing. Seems like they're all at it.

Capita are the bozo's that harass people for not stumping up the BBC tax. Hence the BBC's reticence at naming them.
