A BOGUS electrician made off with more than £41,000 in used bank notes by conning his way into staff areas at three Co-op stores to crack the safes.
Conrad Williams, who plundered his haul in a single day, was like a toddler with the sweet shop door open, his barrister told Bradford Crown Court yesterday.
Williams 23, wore a workman's outfit and carried a holdall to rifle safes at Co-op stores in Menston Main Street, Brook Street, Ilkley, and Bingley Road, Saltaire, on October 18.
He was arrested after an alert went out and he was challenged by a staff member at a store in King Edward's Drive, Harrogate. She tried to detain him but he made off.


Williams, 23, was on bail at the time for burgling £2,000 of electrical items from living quarters at the former Malsis School, near Glusburn, North Yorkshire, on June 28.
Prosecutor David McGonigal said Williams, of Beck Road, Skipton, posed as an employee of Integral UK to target the Co-op stores.
He fooled staff into thinking he was testing electronic equipment and was left alone with the safes.
He got away with £14,280 from the Menston branch, £16,100 from Ilkley and £11,000 from Saltaire.
