Dumb Criminals – The Best Way to Get Caught? Call 911!

Pin It

In Daytona Beach, Florida, the dumb criminal capital of America, two Florida teenagers are facing charges after breaking into cars. Apparently one teen’s phone was programmed to call 911 and the phone was smarter than the teens and called (maybe accidentally) 911 to inform law enforcement of the crimes taking place.

Dispatchers from the police department listened in at the duo discussing the cars they were breaking into and the stuff that was worth taking. Seems some info was given that directed law enforcement to the parking lot of a local nightclub where the teens were apprehended. Karma man karma.

Meanwhile, another Cro-Magnon Mickey-the-dunce in Utah stole 2 phones from a convenience store. In the process he left a piece of paper with an address he was going to. So now cops had a lead. But it gets better. The store clerk reported the theft and gave a description of the man to police.

Moments later as Mickey was driving and looking for the address, he pulled over to ask a cop for directions. Immediately the cop recognized the address and the dunces description and arrested him. Karma man karma.

And in an amazing criminal history that spans 55 years, an 80-year-old woman, known as the “Beverly Hills Burglar,” gets three years for breaking into a medical building.  Her rap sheet was well known in Beverly Hills as she’s been to the clink in the past. She was quoted saying “I’m 80 years old,” she said. “I don’t think I’ll ever come back – except I’m going to die and be in the morgue.”

That’s amazing and sad all at the same time.

Lock up. Don’t be victimized. And don’t be dumb.

Home Safety Tips:

1. Install outdoor lighting on timers and motion sensors.

2. Make sure your home has a “lived in” look.

3. Use indoor timers for lights, TVs and automatic shades.

4. Install security cameras that can be remotely monitored.

5. Install a home alarm system monitored by an alarm company and the police.
