Blog From The Dog House, Smart Phone Dumb Owner!

Molly The Wally with the police!

Burglar mistakes video camera for a torch and filmed his raid.

A burglar was caught red-handed after accidentally filming a break in on his mobile phone. He had thought he had switched on a torch on his iPhone during the night-time burglary but mistakenly recorded the raid on its camera device. Judge John Potter was told that the defendant still protested his innocence despite the irrefutable evidence. Still protesting his innocence despite video proof? Would you say he is Britain's dumbest criminal. No unfortunately we can do better! How about the  thick burglar who was jailed for six years after leaving his passport, mobile and keys at his place of work ie the poor persons house. His abandoned backpack also contained his mug-shot on a prison ID card, his birth certificate and a tenancy agreement with his signature. He has got to be one of the UK’s dumbest crooks. But the best has to be the teenager who has been dubbed Britain’s stupidest burglar after he stole from his next door neighbour. He was caught minutes later when his victim looked across his lawn and saw the thief wearing his jumper and jeans and tuning his flatscreen TV. The police, who were able to recover most of the stolen belongings including the 42-inch telly, Sky HD box, a Freeview box and camera. Other items stolen included jewellery, an iPod, a shaving set, an alarm clock, CDs, DVDs, Christmas presents including children’s toys and cash including £100 in banknotes and even took a cider bottle filled with five pence coins worth around £60. Who says crime pays?

    The smart ones that use their intelligence for the wrong thing
    And the stupid ones. Like above.:)
