Plucky Lou Ellen apprehends arch villain The Rooster!

Pub regulars scrambled for cover after Chinese Crime Lord Mi Ke Lo AKA "The Rooster" was cornered in the Crispin on Sunday. Having feathered his nest in the early 90s the Rooster had been on the run for some time. "I didn't know who he was at first but he did look like a bit of a cock." said landlord Austin. "a bit quiet at first but he soon came out of his shell after we egged him on a bit and then I cracked a yolk or two before someone noticed he was poaching the collection boxes." "He tried to duck out of the pub and wing it with his ill gotten gains but his cluck had run out when apprehended by local crime fighter PC Lou Ellen. He will be up before the beak on Wednesday and likely be cooped up doing bird at her Majesty's pleasure for a very long time." PC Lou Ellen said "It's not often you get to collar a villain this high up the pecking order so I'm trilled to bits".
