Corona lockdown cops in Wales questioned a person about items she was about to buy at a grocery store in another example of how COVID-19 rules are being poorly enforced.
The country is currently under a ‘level 3’ lockdown, which means everything has been completely shut down except supermarkets and other grocery stores.
According to a resident of Monkton, a small village in Wales, police arrested her before she entered a branch of the Spar convenience store and questioned her about what she was considering buying.
The woman said the police asked her where she was going before responding that she was going to Spar to buy cream.
The cops then asked if custard was an “essential” item, to which the woman asked, “Well, would you have crumble without custard?”

The agents took no further action, but the fact that they appear to have no understanding of the law, which does not give them the power to control what people buy in stores, is alarming.
As we reported last month, the Welsh government initially ordered supermarkets to cover ‘non-essentials’, including sanitary products, books and clothing, a move that sparked a massive backlash.
This is by no means the first time that people have been questioned by police about their shopping habits in the name of preventing the spread of COVID.
In April, we highlighted how Scottish police fined a buyer who bought wine and chips during the coronavirus lockdown, claiming they were ‘non-essential’ items.
Another man reported that his friend’s daughter was also fined £ 30 for buying wine and snacks.
Another man in London claimed he was arrested and fined by police for buying wine, although this was not a violation of lockdown laws.
Northamptonshire police have also threatened to start searching people’s shopping carts in an attempt to catch coronavirus lockout violators, but then had to reverse the policy following a public backlash.
