Apo to CNN:

LONDON (Reuters) -- A British man trapped the thief who stole his pager by
leaving a message saying he had won 500 pounds ($835) in a competition.

David Withers lost the pager when his car was broken into. Builder Justin
Clark, ensnared in the simplest of stings, was fined 150 pounds ($251) for
being in possession of stolen property after answering the message.

Withers told reporters: "I was fuming when I found my car had been broken
into. I called police and then decided to leave the message. Not long
afterwards, my mobile rang and a shady-sounding voice asked about the
"I told him he had won 500 pounds in a church fete and that I had paged
him because I did not want to send the money by post. The police arrested
the idiot when he came to collect the prize. I could not believe anybody
would be that stupid."
