A GOOD Samaritan tackled a thief who had stolen money being withdrawn by a pensioner in Newquay on Saturday.

The hero gave chase after spotting a woman grab a bundle of notes from the cashpoint at Sainsbury’s supermarket at around 4.15pm.

A police spokesman said: “A member of the public chased the female who dropped the cash which has since been returned to the elderly victim.”

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call police on 101, quoting crime reference GN/14/13.

    Sad to know there are people around who would rob the elderly but all credit to the person who gave chase with a good result.
