 A man successfully broke into a bank after hours and stole the
bank's video camera. While it was recording, remotely.  (That
is, the videotape recorder was located elsewhere in the bank, so
he didn't get the videotape of himself stealing the camera.)


 A man walked into a Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter and
asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man
pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which
the clerk promptly provided.  The man took the cash from the
clerk and fled-leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total
amount of cash he got from the drawer? Fifteen dollars. (If
someone points a gun at you and gives you money, was a crime


 Seems this guy wanted some booze pretty badly. He decided that
he'd just throw a cinder block through a liquor store window,
grab some booze, and run.  So he lifted the cinder block and
heaved it over his head at the window.  The cinder block bounced
back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him
unconscious. Seems the liquor store window was made of Plexi-
Glass. The whole event was caught on videotape.

 New York:

 As a female shopper exited a convenience store, a man grabbed
her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately and the
woman wasable to give them a detailed description of the
snatcher. Within minutes, the police had apprehended the
snatcher. They put him in the cruiser and drove back to the
store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand
there for a positive ID. To which he replied "Yes Officer,
that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."


 When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home
parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained
for.  Police arrived at the scene to find an ill man curled up
next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman
said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and
plugged his hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake.
The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that
it was the best laugh he'd ever had.


 A woman was reporting her car as stolen, and mentioned that
there was a car phone in it. The policeman taking the report
called the phone, and told the guy that ad in the newspaper and
wanted to buy the car. They arranged to meet, and the thief was

 Ann Arbor:

 The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into
a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan at 7:50am, flashed a gun
and demanded cash.  The clerk turned him down because he said he
couldn't open the cash register without a food order. When the
man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren't available
for breakfast. The man, frustrated, walked away.

 And Finally, Kentucky:

 Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a
chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck.
Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they
pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene
and drove home. With the chain still attached to the machine.
With their bumper still attached to the chain.  With their
vehicle's license plate still attached to the bumper.
