stupid illinois criminals committing stupid crimes
Illinois’ stupid criminals rented U-Haul trucks. That’s a bad start. Tracking documents is not that difficult. The suspect then pulled the ATM machine along with the vehicle from the location. Now add property damage to their claim list. I think those things are cheap.
I’m pretty sure they also damaged the U-hole. There is a security deposit for that. The thief had never even broken into a machine to steal money, so he didn’t give things a second thought. I’m sure they didn’t explain the video camera. Then finish off this dumpster fire. When the cops arrived they just started running. They left all the evidence, including the rental truck.
At least when they go to jail, this crew isn’t alone. I’m sure they’ll join this Cubs fan who stole liquor from a grocery store pretending to be an employee. If you want more ridiculous crime tales, sign up here.
