Fraudster too honest for his own good

I am a serving officer with Cambridgeshire Constabulary, England.

Last year while dealing with minor crimes at Wisbech, Cambridgeshire I took on a fairly sorry attempted deception using a stolen credit card. After a bit of asking around I nicked the suspect and brought him in for an interview. After initially protesting his innocence claiming that he had nothing to do with it he relented and admitted that he had tried 'clocking' a bent card (presenting a stolen card for goods and paying the supplier on a sale or return basis if you don't get caught). After that the interview went something like this;

"So Thomas, who else went into the shop with you?"

"No one I did it myself"

"Are you saying that you tried to use the card?"

"Yeah"

"I've watched the video tape, sure it was you?"

"Yep, absolutely."

"So on that day you were a short heavily pregnant young girl then?"

"Er, well, alright then that was Stacy."(his girlfriend)

Then after a bit more talking I asked, "Tom, if you've decided to be so honest with me, why were you so upset when I arrested you earlier?"

"I thought you were nicking me for that shoplifting from yesterday."

"What shoplifting?"

"I nicked some gear from Woolworths yesterday, didn't you know about that?"

"I do now, thanks."

ii)it was a mistake anyone could make, and it doesn't make him stupid.
