Stupid crime does not pay.

A lovely little story from the BBC this week – here are a couple of choice phrases to give you the flavour:

Fourteen GPS tracking systems were stolen last week from a warehouse in Babylon, New York. They were to be used to help the city council track lorries.

Police remotely activated the systems after the theft which lead them to the home of one of the alleged culprits.

“The GPS device is quite beneficial when we are looking for something,” said Inspector Robert Casagne.

For their next daring raid, might I suggest that these Napoleons of crime should try breaking into a a police station (armed with a pepper mill and a rolled-up copy of the Beano, of course), and try to steal a police car instead? That has to be far smarter.
