A teenage tearaway picked on the wrong victim when he snatched the camera bags of Western Daily Press photographer Steve Roberts in a drive-by theft.
Roberts promptly snapped 18year-old Daniel Campbell who was riding pillion on a motorbike as he made off with the bags in Bristol last May (Press Gazette, 21 May).
The WDP ran the picture and helped bring him to justice after readers identified him.
Last week Roberts was jailed for eight months. He admitted 30 other theft and attempted theft offences.
