Fallen nametag helps Albuquerque police aprehend computer theif

The Sunday edition of the Boston Herald ran a hilarious column by Mike Pingree called Please officer, I was only kidding, honest. It cites several police incidents that were, well...stupid.

This one was my favorite:

"A man broke into a school facility in Albuquerque, N.M., and stole some computer equipment, but he left behind the nametag he wore at the restaurant where he worked. The name was 'Sam.' The cops went to the restaurant and arrested a 19-year-old guy named Sam." (Oringinal article from the Albuqurque Tribune here.)

Damn it! So much for becoming a bank robber.


Have you ever been wearing a nametag...and wished you weren't?
