Multiple police dogs not a welcome sight for suspects
I love stupid criminal stories. My favorite is about a guy who robbed a liquor store. When the clerk asked for ID because he looked young and was taking beer, the thief presented his driver’s license. This made it easier for the police to apprehend him, in case you were wondering. Similarly, I like the one about the man holding up a bank who wrote his demands on the back of his personal deposit slip, which allowed police to go to his house to arrest him. Of course, he might not feel as stupid as the crook who pulled a trash bag over his face at the start of a robbery only to realize he’d forgotten to cut eye holes in it.
