On December 13 a pair of shoplifters made off with a load of DVDs and video games from a Wisconsin Target store. Then they spent an hour boasting about how easy it was, making fun of other criminals for getting caught. I'm sure the 911 operator listening in on the conversation found it highly amusing.
According to police reports, one of the two would-be criminal masterminds somehow managed to dial 911 on the cell phone in his pocket shortly after their big Target score. Unaware of the 911 operator listening in on their conversation, the pair spent the better part of an hour discussing their caper, and when plans were made to sell off their ill-gotten gains at a local video game store police were waiting, guns drawn, broad smiles no doubt hidden beneath the stern grimace of authority.
Me? I would have completely lost my shit.
Check out the video below for excerpts from the captured criminals' planning.
The pair have been arrested and charged with criminal stupidity, or possibly some sort of theft-related charge.
