Friday FAIL

It has been a sucky week for posting, like Foot sez earlier. But I found an article today that might help reverse the trend. From the MN Sun Post, we learn of a spectacularly dim robber whose heist ended in a spectacular FAIL.
A Minneapolis man could end up behind bars for up to five years for stealing $3 to $4 in loose change from a area hair salon.

The Hennepin County Attorney's Office on Jan. 30 charged Mark Allan Woodworth, 44, with third-degree felony burglary. He's accused of breaking into and stealing spare change from Stephan's Hair Stylist, 4120 Lakeland Ave., in Robbinsdale.

("Change We Can Believe In!" -ed)

Woodworth is being held on $10,000 bail at the county's Public Safety Facility.

(That's one effed-up ROI, dude.)

About 1 a.m. on Jan. 29, a witness called police after seeing someone break the front door at the business and then leave. The witness provided a suspect description, which included that the man wore a distinct black jacket with a symbol on the back.

(An arrow and "I'm with Stupid")

A short distance later, police picked up Woodworth; he matched the suspect description. Woodworth had a cut on his left hand and was bleeding. There was blood at the scene of the burglary.

The witness positively identified Woodworth.

Police obtained video surveillance from RC Liquors, the city of Robbinsdale's municipal liquor store. The video appears to show Woodworth attempting to break into RC Liquors with a large rock, then walking to the hair salon and throwing the same rock.
When apprehended, I'll bet the suspect wore a distinct symbol on the back of his pants.
