Thief stole laptop after apologising to victimThief stole laptop after apologizing to wheelchair bound  victim 

You can’t make this up.

Months earlier Ivan Barker, 21, had stolen a laptop and cigarettes from wheelchair-bound Jean Jacque Mathely.

So when he called round to say “sorry” his victim was naturally guarded, but let him in after he said police suggested he should face up to his offending.

But once inside, rather than apologise to the man he had wronged, he made off with Mr Mathley’s new laptop.

Now Barker, who sold the stolen goods to pay for booze, has finally been jailed for 16 weeks after pleading guilty to theft.
