Thievery 101: Don't Steal Right Next To A Police-Dog Training Site


"You're the disease... and I'm the cure. But wait,
are you chiggers? I don't want to mess with chiggers."

Criminally stupid:

A would-be thief proved himself lacking in key skills like reconnaissance and driving after he tried to pull a heist beside a police-dog training site and then got stuck in the snow trying to flee.

Police in Edmonton, Alberta, said officers were training with a dog at a business late Tuesday when they heard an alarm sound from the building next door.

When they went to investigate, a car smashed through a garage door and zoomed past an officer and his dog, Wizzard, Edmonton police spokeswoman Karen Carlson said.

"He didn't get very far because he got stuck in a snow bank," Carlson said. The car turned out to be stolen.

The suspect tried to make a break for it on foot, but was quickly forced to give himself up when Wizzard caught up with him.

"There was a marked police car parked outside and they were inside the building doing training, which is normal for us," Carlson said. "Then, sure enough, this goes on right next door to them."

A marked police car. Smart, tough. Whatever happens, I hope this solid citizen doesn't lose his voting rights. How could the Republic endure without his electoral input?

Actually it happened in Alberta, Canada, but whatever.

Thanks to yls.
