How NOT to rob a property.

Here are some tips on how to be a very pathetic thief.

  1. Try right after a rain, when the ground is soft, so that you'll leave lots of obvious footprints.
  2. As you jump over the fence, talk in loud voices, and bang on the side of the house so that the owners will hear and yell at you.
  3. Go on the property at around 11:00 pm when most people are still awake, so they can stop you.
  4. Put your cell phone somewhere that it can fall out, so that the owners of the house can find it and call the numbers in your address book.
Yep, this is really happened. Last night, we heard loud voices and scraping and Kathleen saw some feet running past her window. And they left their cell phone for us. How nice.

Brilliant. I think Josh had a book on the worlds dumbest
criminals. This one could qualify. It makes you shake your head, doesn't it?
