A 95-year-old widow gave a Christmas caroler a glass of lemonade and some spare change only to discover later that he had stolen her savings from her purse, police said. The schoolboy stole 95 pounds (about $174) from Annie Thomas after singing carols on her doorstep, Detective Inspector John Davies said this week. After singing "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Good King Wenceslaus," the teen-ager asked Thomas for a glass of water, Davies said.

Without greater vigilance, it warned, the crime rate could soar to U.S. levels. The overall crime rate rose 17% in England and Wales in 1990. Ninety-four percent of the 4.5 million reported crimes were theft and other property offenses, the Home Office said.
