CLUELESS CAPERS & DUMB CROOKS
London, Great Britain
A nineteen-year-old thug, along with three other crooks, raided an off license liquor store in New Southgate, north London. He took out his wallet out to pay for a can of lager beer in order to get the shopkeeper to open the cash register. The other three other members of the gang ransacked the shop escaping with cash, phone cards and booze.
In the confusion the nineteen-year-old made three big mistakes. One, he left his wallet with his ID on the counter. Two, he dropped his cell phone, with his number in the memory. And three, he left his fingerprints on the can of beer. He was arrested the next day.
