Shop manager, Margret Margretson said “There were three teenagers in the shop, wearing shell-suits and baseball caps. They were being very noisy! One kept shouting “Arse!” and the others would look round to see if anyone noticed, then they would laugh! We think they were looking for a bit of attention. When they left, I noticed they’d stolen something! They could have stolen anything, but they stole half a bar of chocolate! If anyone’s that hard up – they can have the bleddy thing!”
Experts say the Camborne Mafia are not linked to the real Mafia in anyway. If seen in the street the best thing to do is to “Just ignore them!” Enforcement officer Graham James said “You’ll see them hanging round the shop somewhere, or next to a phone box, or sat outside a supermarket. Sometimes drinking cider. They are a bit like farts, nobody likes them and no matter what you do, they’re there when you least expect them!”
It is believed the teenagers are also responsible for a spate of graffiti in and around Camborne.
Do you know who the Camborne Mafia are? Cornish News would love to meet them.
