Dion Davis, 29, of Florida, found a convenient house to rob this past September. No one was home in the middle of the night and he found easy access through a kitchen window which was not latched. Upon entering the home, Davis put all the jewelry he could find in a Ziploc bag and sat on a bed to consider what he would do next.
That's when Davis laid his head down to think, but being tired, he fell fast asleep. So when the maid came later that morning, she saw that someone had broken in and that he was sound asleep on the bed! She quickly called 911 and the police arrived shortly after.
Still asleep, the burglar didn't even stir when an officer went ahead and took several photos of the sleeping thief. The stolen bag of jewels was right next to Davis on the bed. The police finally woke Davis up and cuffed him. You snooze, you lose!
Shirley Mae Mason, 46, stole $600 worth of goods in six bags at a Michigan Walmart. Six bags?! So much for the security guards! But there was just one thing. She could not find a ride from anyone. Not wanting to walk over a mile to her house, Mason did the unthinkable. She rode off in the motorized handicap cart! The police easily spotted her on the side of the road and, after further questioning, arrested her for retail theft - and for driving a stolen vehicle... the $1200 cart!
