that b**ch back!"
Sirrah was reported stating, "We got a telephone call just this morning from

The 49 year old man, Mick Ridley, was in the bath when his son raised the alarm.
Without even grabbing a towel, Mick raced downstairs and jumped into his Range Rover to give chase.

managed to get in front and block the road.
He said: "I ran over to the cab and he looked at me with real shock - I don't
think he was expecting a naked man."
The thief escaped while Mick waited for police but was later caught in nearby
