[CCTV image of Nicki Jex with a concealed sex toy]
[…] Nicki Jex concealed the Rampant Rabbit sex toy in a carrier bag and pretended it was a gun during the raid on the Ladbrokes shop in Leicester on December 27 last year.
[…] The surveillance camera recorded Jex striding into the shop brandishing the „firearm“ minutes before staff were due to close for the day.
Tim Palmer, prosecuting, told the court: „The defendant pointed the item in the carrier bag at the cashier. She immediately assumed it to be a firearm. In fact, what was contained within the carrier bag was the defendant’s girlfriend’s vibrator.“
The cashier retreated behind the counter and he turned the imitation weapon on the shop manager, demanding cash. She handed over £613 in till contents and other money, the court was told.
