Well, this dude has to be dumb as a box of rocks. Wasn't there anything better to steal after all the effort he made to do it. I'm not condoning the act of stealing though, I am amazed as always how stupid people can be.
Perhaps he must have over active sweat glands what do you think? By the way is this an act of desperation because of what happens when I hear food stamps won't let you buy toiletries.

Well if he was trying to steal it he should have shoplifted.

These aren't criminal masterminds, these are people acting out of desperation or complete idiocy.

Police said the man was found in the area with stolen gift cards and two cans of deodorant.
According to local reports, the man told police he found the gift cards on the ground. Police compared his image to that on store surveillance video and arrested him.

Someone didn't or couldn't read the part of the giftcard where it said "not valid until swiped".

Since we're sharing goofy criminal stories. Not to long ago, a local guy slammed his truck into a pawnshop, pretty much decimating the vehicle. This was only the start of his troubles that day, as he dropped the first t.v. he tried to steal.
Took off on foot, leaving the truck, though I suppose he didn't have much of a choice. Don't know if I would've hid out at home though...They traced him back through the license plate and that was as they say, that.

But he did swipe them... right out of the store.

That was funny too! At least sometimes you can get funny things from the media.
I think if I were that desperate, I'd plan a little more carefully. That's for sure. Wouldn't want to be the dumb criminal of the week especially all over the internet. Fortunately> i'm not that desperate.
