Police Post Selfie, Statement on Facebook Regarding Fruit Machine Bandits

In the annals of criminal offenses, this will surely rank among the dumbest of the dumb.

Selfie taking bandits were captured stealing money from fruit machines in North Yorkshire, England this past week, perhaps in hopes of achieving the elusive rainbow riches (yes indeed the one guy even looks like a leprechaun).

Instead, they are heading to the Clink!

Their own selfies got them captured and the North Yorkshire Police were more than happy to make them feel like total fools, complete of course by posting one of the said selfies (seen here).

From the North Yorkshire Police Facebook page:

We caught these fruit machine bandits after they posed for selfies while they committed their crimes.

They took balaclavas with them to disguise themselves during theft sprees - but came unstuck after they decided to photograph themselves celebrating, posing and grinning after pocketing the cash.

They carried out a string of crimes with no thought for the businesses they were targeting - but ultimately their greed, arrogance and affinity for 'selfies' proved to be their downfall.

This sends out a clear message that anyone travelling into North Yorkshire to commit crime will be caught and brought to justice.
