Crook caught…

…after having his picture taken.

And it wasn’t a matter of, “Hey! Stop that man! He took our purses! Quick, take his picture, and we’ll try to get him later!”

No. It was a matter of, “Hey! Let’s take each other’s pictures! Aw, some dumb jerk just jumped in front of the camera, forcing me to take his picture. Oh, well.”

Later that night, that dumb jerk stole the ladies’ purses, forgetting that he’d earlier handed them all the evidence they’d need to find him.

He was later caught, using that picture. Congratulations, drunken dumb guy. You make law enforcement easy.

*As an aside, I find it weird that the headline of that news article is warning robbers not to do what this guy did. You’d think they’d encourage more people to do it, considering.

    A smart thief would realise that these people had previously taken his picture and either a) decide against robbing them or b) STEAL THE CAMERA AS WELL.

    This guy failed as a crook on SOOO many levels!

    And to your aside, Karen – where’s the fun in capturing a crook who makes it THAT easy? The law enforcement agencies are highly trained, and are inconsolable if they don’t get to use all their leet crimecracking skillz 😀

    Oh, and in lieu of the actual picture, please accept this substitute, found at friendfeed and flickr:
