Robber jailed for attempted theft of dog poop

London - A would-be mugger fell foul of the law after he told a woman to hand over her bags in the west of England, only to discover they contained fresh dog excrement.

Drug addict David Carlisle, 32, held a knife to Marion Budd's abdomen as she walked her dog in Bristol, and demanded that she hand over her bags and cash.

When Budd, 52, told him the bags had just been used to scoop up her pet's poop, he fled empty-handed.

Carlisle appeared at Bristol Crown Court earlier this week and was sentenced to four years in prison for the attempted robbery, which happened last July.
