A Polish supermarket manager has taken the notion of ‘name and shame’ further in his dealing with shoplifters – he displays them in a cage.

Frustrated by repeated thefts from his supermarket in Zambrow, owner Eugeniusz Kaczynski set up a cage in which he keeps shoplifters on public display until the police arrive. Their photographs are also displayed throughout the store.

Theft, he says, has virtually stopped since he started his unusual initiative.
