Today was an unforgettable day! This afternoon I was in a book store buying some books. I was looking for a book called “Harry Potter” when I saw a fishy man. The man was holding a book when he looked around. He looked scared.
Then he quickly put the book in his bag and left. I immediately told a security guard about the man. When the man was walking out of the bookstore, the security guard stopped him. I got on my phone and called the police, “A thief has stolen a book in a bookstore in Wan Chai. Please come quickly!” I said nervously.
Within minutes, the police arrived and arrested the thief. The bookstore manager thanked me “Thank you so much for your help”. You helped the police to catch the thief. He gave me another book called “Mia in the Mix” for my help. I was happy because I aided the police and the bookstore to catch the thief. I was really proud of what I did. I hope that the police will catch all the thieves.
I was busy buying books in the bookstore. I chose some books when I saw a man holding a book. He looked around nervously and said “What a relief! Nobody even noticed me”.
He put the book in his bag and left. He looked very worried. I thought that this man was a thief, so I followed him immediately. I trailed behind him very slowly, so that he doesn’t see me.
Suddenly a hand appeared in front of the man. It’s a security guard. “Excuse me Sir! Someone told me a book was missing” said the security guard suspiciously. Did you steal it? The man looks very scared. He couldn’t even say a word. The security guard said “Ok! I think I should look in your bag.” The man was frightened, he wanted to run away, but the security guard stopped him. The security guard look inside the bag and saw the missing book. He then called the police immediately. Within minutes the police arrived and arrested the man. They placed the book on the bookshelf and took the man to the police station.
Today was a great day! I helped the police to catch a thief. I was proud of myself. Today I went to the bookstore to buy books for my project.
When I was buying books, I saw a man holding a book nervously and he put the book inside his bag. I thought “he must be a book thief!”. When the thief tried to leave the shop, I ran over to the security guard and told him what I saw. The guard stopped the man and found the book inside his bag which the man didn’t pay for. After a few minutes the police arrived and arrested the man. I felt very proud of myself but I thought the man was weird. “What kind of person would steal a book?”. Why didn’t he pay for the book? Is he poor?
There are still so many questions on my mind about that “book thief”.
Today I went to the bookstore to buy some books. I saw a man holding a book he wanted to steal. So I followed the man around the shop.
The man puts the book into his bag and tried to leave the bookstore as soon as possible. I saw the man feeling very worried because he stole the book from the bookstore, so he went out and ran away.
As he tried to run out of the bookstore the security guard stopped him calmly. The security guard said to the thief” Please give me your bag and let me check it”. “What is inside your bag?” the security guard asked curiously. As the guard reached inside the bag he discovered the book the man tried to steal from the bookstore.
At last the security guard called the police, and minutes later the police arrived and arrested the thief who tried to steal the book from the shop. The police took the man to the police station for further investigation.
From this story I learned that we shouldn’t steal or take anything that don’t belong to us. This was a terrible and horrible day for me.
I saw a thief in the bookstore today. At the time I was busy reading a book when I saw a man stealing a book from the shop.
The man was reading the book with many people around him. When the people left the man puts the book quickly into his bag and ran away.
I saw a security guard near the door of the bookshop and approached him as soon as I can. I told him about the thief and what I have witnessed. “Excuse me Sir” I said anxiously. I saw a man stealing a book from the shop. He has a big bag and is wearing a gray T-shirt. The man is leaving the shop now. I was pointing my finger in the direction of the thief while I was telling the security guard.
After a short while more guards arrived. One of them stopped the thief and asked him about the crime. I felt very proud of my cleverness because the guard said “Thank you” to me.
Today I went to the library to read a few books. Suddenly I saw a thief whilst I was reading. The man held a few books in his hands and stuffed them into his bag and left in a hurry.
I saw what had happened and I called the police immediately. The police arrived in seconds and arrested the thief. All of the sudden the thief fell down and started to cry hysterically. I was surprised at his strange behavior, so the police officer asked him why is he crying? The thief said quietly “I stole the books from the library because I love studying and I don’t have money or an ID card I can use to help me borrowing books from the library”. So he thought about stealing the books.
Unluckily for him I saw him stealing books from the library and I phoned the cops. The police said to the man “Don’t steal anything again”. The man felt happy and left.
I helped the police to catch a sneaky thief today! When I was looking around the bookstore everything seemed fine, until I saw a strange man looking very nervous whilst he was holding a book. Suddenly, he puts the book inside of his bag and made a run for the door. He was a thief!
Unfortunately for him, the guard saw what he did and stopped him. The guard said “Please pay for the book you got, or I’ll call the police”. The thief shouted “Liar! I didn’t steal anything! You can check my bag and see if you can find anything”. The guard looked inside the bag but he couldn’t find anything.
That’s odd I thought. I can prove it. I saw the “thief” stealing the book. How can the guard free him? Shall I call the police? Questions flew through my head. Finally, I decided to follow the “thief”. The “thief” went to a restaurant and sat down. Then he took out the book! It was exactly the same book from the bookstore! He really did steal it! I wanted to call the police right away, but in case the thief lies again I must find more proof. Almost at the same time, the guard from the bookstore pointed to a woman. “Thief!” he yelled. What was going on? Why had an innocent woman became a suspect? Just then the “real thief” left the restaurant. This crime is really strange!
I thought that I’ll get into trouble so I decided to leave the mall and head back home. But first I called the police. Suddenly, someone got hold of my arm and pulled me to the side. It was the guard. I couldn’t believe it. How can the guard help the thief? Why was this book so important? I screamed extremely loud so he hits me on my head and I fainted. When I opened my eyes, I was in the hospital with great many people staring at me. There were my parents, family members, classmates and a news reporter. At last, it turned out the book was very precious, so a rich collector told the thief and the guard to steal it by giving them money. Fortunately for us, they all got arrested and I was interviewed on TV as well as in the newspaper. I was so proud of myself.
I witnessed a crime today in a public bookstore. A few days ago, I heard that a science fiction book from America was let out. When I heard the news, I was so excited that I couldn’t wait until Saturday. Today was the big day! I ran to the bookstore to buy one of the books. Something caught my eye. It was a book with a golden cover! That was the science fiction book I wanted. I grabbed the book immediately, but then I thought the final exam is coming soon, so I went to the ‘Learning Section’ to get some English revision books.
Then I saw a man holding the book I loved and looked around everywhere in a very strange way. ‘There must be something suspicious about him. He looks fishy!’ I thought. He was really a shoplifter! I witnessed the man putting the book into his blue bag. There was two women next to the man but they didn’t see him. They were still reading their own books. He looks everywhere once again to make sure no one could see him. Then he walked towards the exit of the bookstore.
I left the golden book in the bookstore and trailed behind the shoplifter. Unfortunately for him, there was a security guard at the exit. I saw him pretending that nothing had happened, but the security guard was smart. He stopped him and asked him several questions. “What is in your bag?” I saw you rubbing your bag nervously. “It’s nothing, it is just a book I bought” said the man. The security guard grabbed the bag and checked it. All of the sudden, a man hits the guard with a stick! The security guard fainted and the two men ran away. The staff in the bookstore and some passersby chased them! ‘Don’t let them get away!’, then I chased them too. Finally, the police stopped the two men. They were about to escape but the police were fast enough and knocked them to the floor. They were arrested at last. The guard who fainted disappeared when I returned. The other guards told me that he was send to hospital. All of the sudden I realized that I haven’t bought the book. I ran in the bookstore, and there it was. The book was eventually bought by me.
Today I helped solving a crime! I was in a bookstore busy reading a few books when a man grabbed a book from the shelves. He looked around nervously and put the book in his bag. I saw a thief!
The thief was leaving the bookstore whilst I was looking for a guard or an officer. Then I found a guard by the door and told him what I saw and pointed in the direction of the thief. I said loudly “He is a thief!”. I saw him stealing a book while I was busy reading. Catch him before it’s too late. The guard chased the thief. “Stop!” the guard shouted. “Let me look in your bag”. “Ummu…” said the thief, I have an important place I need to go too!”. The thief tried to run away but the guard grabbed him by his arm to prevent him from running away. The guard opened the thieves bag. There were lots of money, jewelry and valuable things inside. It turned out that the thief stole a lot of things from the rich and careless people and had not been caught. The thief got arrested and the guard thanked me for my help. He said that the thief wouldn’t had been caught if it wasn’t for me. I was really proud of myself.
This was the best day of my life. From this day my parents as well as my friends call me “Little police man”. I like this name.
Today was a very scary day, because I went to the bookshop with my friend late this afternoon and something scary happened.
It was Sunday and my friend and I had a project to do. So we went to the bookshop to do some research. When we got to the bookshop a man with a mushroom style haircut acted suspiciously, but I didn’t care about him and kept looking for my books. Then I saw that man again and I saw him holding a book in his hand. Then he started to look around and he noticed that no one was looking at him so he placed the book in his bag and left the shop in a hurry.
I approached a cop as quickly as I could and told him what I have witnessed. The quick thinking cop ran towards the man and stopped him. The cop then asked, “Did you steal a book?”. “No Sir, I didn’t!”. Answered the terrified thief. Then the cop grabs the man’s bag and the thief suddenly pulled out a gun from his jacket and shot the cop. “BANG!”, went the sound of the gun. When everyone heard the sound they ran and hid behind covered walls and pillars. My friend told me to leave, so I followed him. As we exit the building, I saw the man fleeing the scene in a black car. I hope the cop doesn’t die and I also hope the other cops catch that thief. What a scary day!
Today was such a great day. I helped the police to arrest a thief. After having a scrumptious lunch at KFC, I went to the bookstore opposite KFC to look for some books about spaceships. As I scanned the names of the books, I saw a very suspicious man looking around nervously and he placed a Chinese book in his bag and left quickly.
I told the security guard immediately. Unfortunately for the thief he wasn’t one of the fastest runners, so the security caught up with him very quickly. I helped the guard to phone the police. After a few minutes the police arrived and arrested him. The man was terrified and pleaded to the police officer not to arrest him. “I won’t do it again” the man said in a terrifying voice, “I promise!”. But unfortunately he was placed in the back of the car and was driven off to the police station.
I felt extremely proud about myself, as this was my first time helping the police to catch a thief.
Today I helped a security guard to catch a thief in a bookstore. After lunch, I went to the bookstore to buy some books for school. As I look through the books, I saw a man beside me holding a book nervously and he quickly put it in his bag and left the shop in a hurry.
I thought this man must be a shoplifter so I followed him through the shop until I was able to find some help. Suddenly I spotted a security guard in the doorway and yelled as loudly as I can “Stop him!”. The security guard was so clever and stop the man immediately.
After a while the police came and arrested the man. I was extremely proud of myself because I helped the police to catch a thief.
