Anne Arundel County Police Report Today – Almost Funny

Not everyone is meant to be a REALTOR or a rocket scientist, and some people probably shouldn’t try to be criminals, either. 

Yard Sale -

You can read today’s Anne Arundel County Police Department press release on Facebook for this story in its entirety, but here’s the Reader’s Digest (i.e. short) version:

Not long after a homeowner returned to discover a break-in had occurred at her home, she drove past a nearby yard sale where she spotted items that were missing from her home and shed.  She called police, a warrant was obtained, and all of her missing items (valued at more than $25,000) were quickly recovered. 

Did it not occur to this burglar that it might be a good idea to either
(A) rob a home in a different area than the one where he intended to display his booty for sale or (B) hold the sale someplace other than a highly-traveled road near the home he burglarized?

Not to minimize the impact of this crime on the victim, but I do suspect she might agree that it’s almost funny (since all of her belongings were recovered and the burglar has been charged).  Congrats to the eagle-eyed victim for spotting her things as she drove past that yard sale!
