A DIM-WITTED thief was caught by police making his getaway from a robbery â€“ on a forklift truck.
Christopher Croston was stopped as he made a slow dash for freedom from the Rolls Royce complex in Bootle.
And the bungling robber was not difficult to spot â€“ he was wearing a high visibility jacket.
Croston, 24, of Chester Avenue, Netherton, was jailed for six and a half years after Liverpool crown court heard he returned to the scene of the crime weeks later for a follow-up robbery.

A 75-YEAR-OLD grandmother is facing a criminal record after failing to pick up litter she had not even dropped.
Bridget Molyneux, a mother-of-three and grandmother-of-five, was walking close to her home in Anfield when she spotted what she thought was a loose Â£5 note.
But when she bent down to pick it up, Mrs Molyneux realised it was an old till receipt and left it lying on the ground.
She was then approached by a street warden who gave her a Â£75 fine for littering.
