You’ll Never Guess If This Thief Got Away After He Robbed A Store With A Clear Bag Over His Head
A man in India has been arrested after he allegedly stole one $2,000 worth of cell phones and accessories.
He might have gotten away with it if put even minimally more effort into the heist. But unfortunately, this guy was caught on video surveillance wearing only a clear plastic bag over his head to cover his identity. He even lifted it up several times during the incident, which really didn’t help his case.
Just look at him take the bag off, right in front of the camera.

Police in Kanyakumari, India were quickly able to find the perpetrator and arrest him.
Now, I’m a law abiding citizen. I believe in rules and I respect our law enforcement. One of my best friends is a cop. So if I think I could have executed a better crime as an unassuming 24 year old female who’s never stolen so much as a pack of gum from a gas station, that’s pretty bad. But this is crime 101. You see it in all the movies. I’m talking The Town, Point Break, and Scooby Doo. All self-respecting bad guys know to conceal their identity. It’s the first thing they do. Second thing they do is get a short, fat sidekick like that guy in Home Alone. It really helps to kick up the evasion-factor. And this guy obviously did neither of those things. Which is why he’s probably gonna spend some time in the clink, cell-phone-less. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
