Dumb thief award

Postby stomperrob » Tue Dec 05, 2006 4:00 pm

A thief in Louisiana was arrested when he went into a gas station wearing a mask, gun in hand, and demanded cash - unfortunately for him, standing in line at the counter was a member of the police department's robbery task force - IN UNIFORM!!! He was promptly arrested for armed robbery (unknown if he was also charged for being stupid in a public place).

Thief foiled by failure to observe
Associated Press

SHREVEPORT, La. — A masked gunman walked into a gas station and demanded money, apparently not noticing that the line at the counter included a uniformed police officer.

L.J. Scott, a member of the Police Department's armed robbery task force, told the would-be robber to put his own hands up.

Scott took the handgun and arrested Derek Pierson Jr., 21, of Stockton, Calif., police department spokeswoman Kacee Hargrave said.

Hargrave said Pierson was booked into the city jail on a charge of armed robbery with a firearm.

Imagine you're in line to buy a soda at the gas station and some nitwit walks in wearing a mask and demands money, then the guy behind you who just happens to be a uniformed cop takes the guy's gun away and arrests him.

Imagine being that guy. :-b

I got bored and was looking for some humorous but true stories and I ran bizarre news on Google and came up with all kinds of good sites!

That's not really a dumb thief. It's just totally horrible luck, LOL.

Anyways, the best dumb thief stories have got to be the ones where the thief leaves behind his wallet which happens to have ID with his address on it.



My personal dumb thief story:
I was walking into a convenience store and passed by a couple kids standing outside the door selling Hersey bars for $2 each. I declined since I was only looking to buy some smokes, but when I walked out, I was a bit lazy in putting my change ($2) into my wallet and was just holding it in my hand with the bills flapping around. So I'm just about to pass the two kids when one of them yanks my change out of my hand and him and his buddy take off running. I stand there a bit confused, then calmly walked over to their candy they left behind and took all of it.

So they stole $2 from me, but I ended up with 60 Hershey bars. ;-D Good deal IMO.
