Johnson fined for attempted theft

LONDON: Portsmouth defender Glen Johnson has been fined by police for trying to steal a toilet seat and bath taps from a store, according to media reports on Friday. 

Johnson, on loan from Chelsea, tried to smuggle the bathroom accessories out of a B & Q home improvement store with the help of Millwall striker Ben May on Wednesday, British media said. 

A police spokesman said: “Kent Police arrested two 22-year-old men on Wednesday on suspicion of theft in Dartford. Both men have been issued with £80 fixed penalty notices”. 

Johnson, who has played five times for England, was Chelsea’s first signing following the club’s takeover by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich in July, 2003. He arrived from West Ham United for £6mil.
