Dumbest Thief Ever Busted by E-mail Habit

Use Netsparker


Sheriff Brian Rahn said the man made coffee, cooked and ate meals, took showers, picked out a change of clothes, watched television and checked his e-mail during the burglaries.

He left behind valuables, including jewelry, firearms and electronic equipment, Rahn said.

He also allegedly stole a car in the town of Wayne in the last of the incidents, Schmidt said.

Lori Menzel of the town of Kewaskum said the burglar left his Yahoo! account open after checking his personal e-mail on the computer at her home.

“He never logged out,” she said, adding: “He made himself at home here. He spent some time in our bedroom trying on my husband’s clothes. I could tell he went through some of my clothes.”

Baraboo police officers saw the suspect Thursday inside a vehicle near the Sauk County Courthouse shortly before 1 p.m., Sinden said.

    Yeah, that guy is a pretty big dumbass right there. I mean, seriously, who would leave behind all that evidence, including your Yahoo mail account, in a world where forensic testing reigns supreme? Tsk tsk…

    Yeah what a dumb-ass, I mean go ahead and check your e-mail if you MUST, but logout after…and clear your cookies, and delete the cache..at least.

    Think like the criminal. His feelings of superiority were so great that
    he felt comfortable checking his email and generally acting like he owns the place.

    Quite sloppy indeed, but I guess it takes all types … and it certainly makes it easier for the ‘smarter’ criminals to evade apprehension.
