Wherein we catch a thief!

On Saturday, a customer caught some guy with his hand in her purse! When she confronted him -- with her phone in his hand -- his big idea was to throw it on the floor and claim she had dropped it.

After she told security, our staff caught the guy, and as they were escorting him outside he kept trying to "adjust" his shoes and socks to cover his attempts to ditch his other loot.

The girl who spotted him is pressing charges, so the cops took him away. Hooray!

At the end of the night, an unusually large number of phones had been turned in to lost and found. Go figure.

    Could you do me a favor and NOT tell us how it all ends? I'm pretty sure I know how it will end - probably described with words like 'wrists' and 'slap' - but I'll be much happier dreaming about more middle eastern methods of crime prevention...

      What, you mean the part where he decides to just not show up for his court date, and there are no consequences of any kind ever? Nah, that'd never happen.

    Here in the South, he'd get a Casino-like beating.

  3. I prefer the Thai punishment of beating with bamboo sticks.
