4 Dumb Thieves
(And 1 Smart One!)
Movies might portray criminals as masterminds with intricate plans but the reality is a little less glamorous. Just search 'Dumb Criminals' and see how many results you get! (FYI it's about 5,360,000). While being the victim of any crime is certainly scary, sometimes you can't help but laugh at how some thieves got caught. Here are 4 of our favorites that we hope give you a chuckle!
- A teenage girl in Nebraska, U.S. robbed a local bank and then stole a car. How did she get caught? She posted a public video bragging about her crime spree on YouTube.
- A burglar in China was caught (literally) by attempting to squeeze through a small fifth floor window of an apartment building.
- In Norfolk, England a man was arrested 15 minutes after posting a selfie with a knife on Facebook, boasting that he had just robbed the supermarket Tesco.
- A man in Texas, U.S. was arrested for forgery, unsurprisingly, after trying to cash a check for $360 billion. And it wasn't even made out to HIM.
