TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Adrian Staples, 37, a Minnesota robber who was arrested after he posted photos on Facebook holding the stuff he stole.
Staples robbed a convenience store and then stopped to take selfies with the cash and cigarettes that he swiped.
Luckily the police decided to search on social media for suspects and low and behold, they found our bragging felon and his stolen booty.
He was arrested at his home later that day.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Anthony Raimondi, 26, a Florida man who was arrested for shoplifting after he tried stuffing a golf club down his pants.
Officials say Raimondi entered Golf Gear in Stuart, Florida and shoved a $200 Callaway putter in his pants and left the store without paying.
Surveillance cameras caught the act and when police asked about the theft, Raimondi said it was to repay a drug debt.
After further review of the video, it was determined Raimondi had taken another putter earlier this month and hid it “the same way.”
So Raimondi was busted on two counts of retail theft.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Two bungling thieves in Washington, who stole an entire ATM, loaded it into their van, then lost it after they hit a speed bump.
Police found the ATM in the road and local surveillance camera showed a truck driving off after a speed bump cause the ATM to fall out.
However, they were unable to get the plate number, so the thieves are still at large.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
A 22-year-old female student in Georgia, who blew her $90,000 college fund on expensive clothes and a trip to Europe and is now blaming her parents because she has no way to pay for her senior year.
The woman, identified only as Kim, contacted an Atlanta radio show in hopes of sympathy cash from listeners.
She said her parents set up the fund for her 4 years ago, but after taking a long trip to Europe, she came up $20,000 short on the bill for her final two semesters.
She said she couldn’t get a bank loan because she needed her parents to cosign and they wouldn’t do it unless she had a part-time job, which she doesn’t.
Now she’s blaming her parents for her irresponsible behavior. Ah, the youth of today.
