A dimwit Northern Ireland man wore a fluorescent builders’ bib while attempting to rob houses under the cover of darkness.
Bungling would-be thief Stephen Frederick Hamilton was spotted by neighbours who called the cops as he tried to break into houses in Dunlady Manor in Dundonald.
An Indiana state trooper became concerned when he saw an aggressively driven pickup with red and blue strobe lights flashing on Indiana 3. He followed the truck until it reached its’ “emergency destination”, a local McDonald’s, and the driver and a passenger climbed out. Turns out that they were two teenage boys, not emergency personnel. Their explanation that authorities were more lenient where they came from (country boys) and all the other kids did it fell on deaf ears.
They’ll get a chance to explain it all to a judge.
