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.

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!
