| Brazenly breaking into a house in broad daylight, these two burglars don't look too worried about being caught.|
And perhaps with good reason.
Despite this clear picture of the pair forcing a rear window open with a crowbar, the serial offenders have both walked free from court.
.....Clark removed a double-glazed window and made off with the haul of electrical equipment while Poyster kept watch.
They then sold the stolen goods to buy drugs and gamble.
But the photographs provided to police by a neighbour were not enough to persuade Judge Simon Darwell-Smith to send either of the men to prison.
Clark, who was the subject of a community order at the time of the burglary, was given a 'final chance' to beat his drug addiction.
He was ordered to attend a project for substance abusers and given a 12-month suspended sentence.
Poyster, who has previous convictions for theft and common assault, was given an 18-month supervision order.
