Mr. Snape was store manager of the Pick-a-Snip Supermarket who witnessed Ena Sharples placing two tins of salmon (priced at 4/6 each) into her basket but not paying for the goods in April 1966. The police were called in and Ena was duly charged with shoplifting. After refusing a solicitor, Ena decided to plead "not guilty" in court; she hadn't intended to steal and accused "big brother" of making an example of her, after he'd related to her his experience of dealing with shoplifters.
On the day of her hearing, the Magistrate found Ena guilty of shoplifting. She was fined 40/- and given a conditional discharge as she was accused of setting a bad example to others at the Mission of Glad Tidings.
