Years ago, when I lived in Flagstaff, Az, they had a rash of bike thefts. Being a college town, there tended to be a lot of people with bikes, plus there were a lot of recreational bikers who would actually spend money on their rides..

Anyway, they were having the hardest time getting any info, always happened at night, no noise, nobody saw them, etc. Finally, someone heard something on the porch, looked out, and the bikes were gone. Being winter, they followed the track's to a house, called the cops and waited. They found a couple hundred bikes at the house in question.

A liquor store i used to run had the window broken and the robbers reached in through the bars to grab bottles. The cops found them by following the blood droplets.

Oh 'multiple' cars. Thats so much easier than one pair of footprints from one car that could go on for more then 700 feet. Like shooting fish in a barrel and enough single charges to actually put the perp in jail longer than 3 hours.

/Heres your case file number and have a nice day.[hangs up phone].

Note to self: criminals aren't any smarter today than they were before, and today, well with biz-drones, poli-drones, priva-drones, securi-drones, and war drones about, *ahem*, criminal, your world just got fuked. So, quit it.

Grow up.

Make the world.

Don't steal from it.

Word.

The sad part is this was the first cop in that town to figure this out.

Portland, Maine, 1987. Drunks smash window of convenience store. Cops follow trail of Doritos and empty beer bottles in the snow to the thieves' apartment.

/I got six months with good behavior.

Not cool story, but really dumb criminal:

Guy hit a pedestrian in the crosswalk by the casino where I worked. Pedestrian got caught in the car's undercarriage, so dumb guy took off into the night dragging the body under his car. When he got to his house, he (and his passengers) fled into the dark, snowy Tahoe night, and were caught at the ends of their respective footprints. Dumb guy was charged, not with vehicular manslaughter, but with 2d degree murder. Why? Because the blood trail of the body showed that dumb guy was not only aware he'd hit the pedestrian and knew it was  stuck under his car, he'd driven through a parking lot trying to shake the body loose going over the speed bumps. The crime scene was 3 miles long, including the detour through the 7/11 lot.

Like I said, there were a lot getting stolen. Flagstaff has 50,000 people, and is the 3rd largest city in Az(minus the cities that make up metro Phx), it was pretty easy to watch the local bike shops, as well as those in nearby cities. The people had to go to Phx to sell them.

I don't believe this story for even a minute

No way someone actually managed to get the police to investigate a car break in

Actually happened "out here". Winter. Three inches fresh snow. At night. Sheriff's deputies chasing domestic abuse knucklehead on foot, followed his footprints into the adobe badlands, which means no trees, no nothing not even an effing shrub as far as you can see and lost him out there.

This happened in Charlottesville several years ago. IIRC it was the pawn shop on the Downtown Mall (Snooky's?) and the perp walked back through fresh snow just before dawn to his apartment in Garrett Square just a couple blocks away. (Garrett Square is what passes for "the projects" in C'ville and the cops love to pretend it is a hotbed of serious crime.)
