Armed dog mess mugger is jailed
A knife-wielding mugger who robbed a woman of her bags before discovering they were full of dog mess has been jailed for four years.
David Carlisle, 32, forced 52-year-old Marion Budd to hand over the bags at knifepoint last July as she walked her dog in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol.
When he realised what he had taken, Carlisle, a drug addict and father-of -four, fled the scene empty-handed.
The bungling would-be thief was jailed after admitting attempted robbery.
His four-year sentence will run concurrently with the seven-year term he is already serving for multiple burglaries.
Bristol Magistrates heard Carlisle, of no fixed address, jumped out of a car and thrust the knife at Ms Budd, and ordered her to hand over her bags.
But he dropped the carrriers and ran off after she told him that the contents were less lucrative than he might have hoped.
Carlisle was tracked down after his DNA was found on the car used in the attempted robbery, and was later identified by the dog walker in a video ID parade.
Recorder John Trevaskis told him it was "testament to his incompetence" that he had attempted to steal a bag of dog excrement.

Umm...I hate to break the news to whoever decided it was attempted robbery but...that was a robbery dude. No attempt about it.

just because he didn't get anything of value doesn't make it an "attempt". It's a robbery. no doubt about it. It looks like a newspaper wrote it though, so what's that tell ya...No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13
