Angry witnesses confronted a man as he was allegedly caught stealing charity shop donations with a wheelie bin.
Footage shows the man rifling through bags of donated clothes and toys on the pavement in front of the Cancer Research UK shop while it was closed.
He's then confronted by Angela Sherratt and two other people, but he claims he doesn't understand what they're talking about.
Mrs Sherratt, who recorded the video, tells him his actions were "disgusting" and another man tells him he's "looting".
But the man simply shrugs and continues to go through bags on the floor, the Burton Mail reports.
