Crime tip: Don’t use the loot to pay your fine


A robber who thought he’d got away with his crime was nabbed after he used easily recognisable stolen money to pay a court fine.

Donald Dejarnette had previously stolen thousands of dollar bills from a Californian restaurant. But unfortunately for him, the Homestead restaurant had a special custom where customers wrote special messages on the notes, which were then stuck up on a message board in the eatery.

Having stolen the board worth $8,000, 34-year-old Dejanette apparently neglected to think about the signatures on the money when he handed some of it in to pay a court bill.
