Dumbass Crooks

Another genius crook finds out that winter has its perils:

A man entered the Mobil gas station, 401 E. North St., at 10:18 p.m., showed a knife to the clerk and demanded cash. He fled north on foot with cash and checks, Babe said.

Police were assisted by residents. The gas station employee was able to tell police which direction the man fled so officers could follow the footprints. A thermal imaging device detects heat so officers were able to tell the tracks were fresh, said Lt. William H. Graham. Police followed his footprints to the man's apartment building.

Next time maybe he'll stay on the shoveled sidewalks, eh?
