Devon: Seagull steals a pack of crisps from a Tesco store

A serial shoplifter nicknamed Steven the Seagull is Tesco’s most wanted after stealing £300 worth of chips – after figuring out how automatic doors work.

The clever seagull is notorious among locals for lingering at the supermarket in Paignton, Devon after finally figuring out how automatic doors work.

In his latest endeavors, Steven was caught on camera stealing a bag of mini cheddars – and is then seen running out of the store with them.

The cunning bird waits for the doors to open, then returns to the store for a brand new pack of chips.

By the time staff tried to stop Steven it was too late as he had rushed down the main street once again leaving staff helpless.

The prolific bird has been known to enter the store at least three times a day and each time come out with a brand new pack of chips.

Steven is believed to have stolen around 17kg of groceries in a year – which is worth more than £300 – although the figure could be much higher.

The seagull likes to change orders and has been spotted with Monster Munch and Mini Cheddars, but he’s often spotted with a big bag of Tangy Cheese Doritos, which are said to be his favorite.

Filming Steven’s latest crime, Liam Brown said: “I’ve seen him go in a couple of times.

“He jumped on my hood this time, so I started recording – I knew he was up to something.

“He jumped down and started chewing gum off the floor, then went into the store and ran off with a pack of mini cheddars.”

A Tesco employee, who wished to remain anonymous, said Steven’s unwelcome visits were an “everyday occurrence”.

She said: “It happens a lot. We believe it’s the same seagull.

“This happens at least once a day, often three times. He’s very picky, but Doritos are his favorites. We have to scare him away because we don’t want to lose stock. We’re always keeping an eye on it.”

Regular Tesco customers have often witnessed Steven’s ambitious exploits, with Jenni Elliott saying: “I saw that too.

“He flew off with a bag of Doritos and shared it with a mate on a rooftop across the street.”

Another customer, Lisa Buck, said: “I saw him doing it. I told the cashier he just ran away with a pack of Doritos and she said, ‘Oh he likes those.’

And Tesco regularly added to Emma Paulson: “I’ve seen it so many times.”
