Thief caught sleeping after cookie snack

MALAYSIAN police have arrested a thief who fell asleep after snacking on cookies in the home of his victim and was discovered curled up in bed clutching a stolen purse, a newspaper has reported.

V. Sathya, an insurance manager in the northern Malaysian state of Terengganu, said his nine-year old son was startled to find the intruder sleeping in his bed, with a blanket pulled over his head, after the family returned from a shopping trip.

“He shouted and ran out of his room,” Sathya told the Star newspaper.

“Even then the burglar did not wake up and carried on sleeping while holding on to one of my wife’s purses.”

The thief also ate up the cookies the family had prepared for Chinese New Year celebrations next weekend.

“My wife had prepared various delicacies over the past few days but the rogue ate everything,” said Sathya, who is married to an ethnic Chinese.

Brothers accused of theft, burglary to cover legal costs

MONTVILLE, Conn. – Two brothers who tried unsuccessfully to dump a stolen truck because they could not remove its tires attempted to cover their legal expenses in that case by stealing items from a local elementary school, according to authorities.

Christopher Lamotte, 18, and Steven Lamotte Jr., 20, face several larceny and burglary charges from the two incidents, police said this week.

Authorities in this southeastern Connecticut town say they had little difficulty finding the suspects.

In the first case, the truck’s owner told police that Christopher Lamotte was the only other person who knew about the vehicle’s hidden key, according to court records. And in the second, the brothers allegedly forgot a knapsack with one of their names inside at the crime scene, authorities said.

Sunglass-Clad Teen Girls Rob Bank of America

                                                 ACWORTH, Ga.Two females who police said might be as young as 16 were clad in sunglasses as they handed a bank teller a note demanding cash, smiled as they waited and walked out with an undisclosed amount of money Tuesday, police said.
“This is something totally new to us,” Cobb County police spokesman officer Wayne Delk said of the robbery at a Bank of America branch inside a grocery store.

The girls approached the teller inside the Kroger store shortly after noon, and witnesses were unable to tell investigators whether they left in a car.

Their only disguise was the sunglasses, and they were clearly pictured in surveillance camera shots.

“The pictures are too good. Someone’s got to know them,” Delk said.

Not sure as to who the idiot would be. The teller who gave away the money by just seeing ” note demanding cash ” or the girls who had just the sunglasses for disguise.

Now if you happen to see them, you know what to do.

All the crooks could steal were heating pipes they ripped off the walls, said police.
