A fantastic headline and a fantastic story.

More deserving of the dumbass tag though.

Boy was I surprised when I showed up and there were cops everywhere. You got me good man! You got me good!

In Columbus, Ohio, this is not considered a Scioto in the arm for a criminal career...

Scioto = shot ?

Definitely an epic fail but what do you expect from kids these days.

I've read this story 3 times now and I still don't understand how the guy got his carjackers' phone number. Did they leave him their card and tell him to get in touch if he ever needed anything?

Er, what? The guy who got carjacked had his phone in the car, which the thieves got. A friend of the guy who got carjacked sent a text message to that phone, which apparently the carjackers checked.

Read it one more time. Especially the part where they send the message to the victim's phone, which was also taken in the carjacking.

Idiot thieves. Never answer a stolen cell phone!

The article says they got his car, his cellphone and some cash.

The guy who got carjacked went to the police to report the robbery, and then went out with some friends to 'drown his sorrows'. One of his friends hatched a plan to catch the robbers by texting to the stolen cellphone (pretending he didn't know the cellphone was stolen), with a message saying there would be hot chicks and drugs at such-and-such time and place.

Then they had the cops stake out the place, I'm assuming.

This thread is worthless without pictures of hot chicks. Pictures of drugs are optional.

Let's pretend for a minute that the text was legit. What did they think was going to happen? If they showed up at the party that Mr. Heuss was invited to with his car right after it was stolen:
1. He could potentially be there and identify them.
2. One of his friends could recognize his car.

Honestly I really can't come up with a way that this plan would have worked out.

In thirteen years with the Bureau, I've discovered that there's no amount of money, manpower or knowledge that can equal the person you're looking for being stupid.

God, well... Some of the stupidest criminals in the world are working right here in America. I've always been very proud of that.

"Hey, Paris Hilton will be in shower room with a bagful of coke. Come right in asap."

Never keep a stolen cell phone. (At least not as part of a larger armed robbery.) That's like stealing someone's LoJack.

Yes, you're right... I know this, and YOU know this. However, we are clearly not dealing with intelligent life here. They stole this guy's BMW, and they now have a lead on some drugs and some hot chicks. That completely drowns out everything else for these farktards. So now, the guy has his car back, and the cops get another story to laugh about. As do we.

I got the impression the robbers sent back their address, so the babes and drugs could be brought to them (where upon they would steel another car and take the women and drugs). The friend just sent the address to the cops instead of showing up at the robbers location.

They're already armed robbers. Perhaps they figured they could take the drugs and maybe the woman.

I've heard that burglars will watches houses they've robbed, if they see boxes from replaced TV's on the curb they'll rob the place again.

Honestly, I'm surprised the cops bothered to stake the place out. My iPod got stolen a while back, and a guy called me up two days later (since I had my phone# on the iPod) and told me some guy tried to sell him the iPod at a party. Gave me the thief's name and contact info. I told the cops. As far as I know the cops never did a thing, even they knew who ended up with possession of my stolen property.

Meh. I realize cops aren't my private servants, but the cop who took the report told me there was a pattern of burglaries very similar to mine in the neighborhood. They had a golden opportunity to nail the guy.

I'm no criminal justice expert, but I'll assume that people who carjack cars for a living thought that they'd show up AND STEAL THE FRIGGIN DRUGS AND RAPE THE LADIES.

Typical cop behavior. Unless there is a huge fine involved, they're not interested. They only come to domestic disputes because the damn calls keep coming in.

In 1994, my house was burglarized just before after Thankgiving. It was nearly emptied. I called the cops. They couldn't care less. "Yeah, it's been happening all around town. Go figure." My neighbor even told them the make/model of the truck they used (my idiot Jeezoid neighbor watched the whole thing and did nothing). The cop made a note and shrugged his shoulders. "Yeah, we'll let you know. Bye."

A few weeks go by. The thief continues to strike. Then, he made the fatal mistake of burglarizing the house of an assistant District Attorney. Immediately a dragnet was set up and an APB went out for that dented white truck. The thief was caught quickly and ended up doing 5 years. Since he was caught quickly, the ADA got most of his stuff back. Me? Nothing.

I haven't called the cops since. My car has been broken into, etc. No point. The police aren't interested in following up property crime. They have a different mission: traffic fines and DUI's. If it ain't generatin' revenue, it ain't worth lookin' into.

CitizenTed: my house was burglarized just before after Thankgiving.

So ummm... is that during Thanks Giving?

Sorry to hear about the shiatty job they did. It does seem that more often then not, personal interest is the only thing that drives these things.
The investigation about the death of my sister has been 'piss-poor' at best. Learning that one of the people who should have been questioned by now (but hasn't) is the brother of a police captain is not doing anything to stem my rage either.

what do ya think, give them a few more weeks, then see what the news stations can stir up?

You should have told them the iPod contained your collection of kiddy porn.
