Man caught stealing wheel caps outside gathering of 30 officers
HOUSTON - A suspect is in custody after being caught by a retired police officer stealing wheel caps off an SUV in a parking lot.Okay, sing the Dragnet theme with me: Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, duuuuumb...
According to officials, at around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday Harris County Precinct 4 constable staff supervisors were having a monthly meeting and retirement celebration at a deli.
During the meeting, a retired police officer was getting out of his car in the deli parking lot at 4700 Cypress Creek Parkway, when he noticed a suspicious male with a screw driver kneeling down by a newer model of a black Cadillac Escalade.
Yes, this budding young Al Capone decided to start his life of crime by stealing the centercaps off the cars parked outside a police retirement dinner. He managed to somehow miss the marked police cars in the parking lot and started right in on the thievery. Oh, to have been a fly on that wall when the retired police officer approached the misunderstood young man...
I only hope he didn't resist arrest... too much.
That is all.
