    ...The burglars knew the passcodes to the safes in question but were still unable to open them after several tries, so they eventually resorted to their good friend Google to tell them how....

    "The Google search proved fruitful for the two burglars, as they were able to get the information they needed and walk away with $12,000 in cash as well as a PlayStation and a laptop. And despite their inept attempts to outwit the security cameras, they have not yet been arrested."

    So who's the real idiots here?
    I don't think it's the burglars . . . you haven't caught them!

    Yeah, I was going to say that the cops could do some high tech computer info running to see who was looking up safe codes, but then the article pointed that out that it was on site! lol too funny.

    It kills me that this article is written from the "Dumb Criminal" point of view.
    I had to read it again because I didn't see the part where they got caught!

    How can you write an article like this when they got away.
    Now granted they may be caught tomorrow, but write it then.
    Right now, these dumb criminals are making you look like a joke.
    If they're dumb . . . how come you can't catch them???

    What does that say about you??

    I love it!!!!

    Typically criminals are very intelligent people, well high profile criminals I guess. I hope you people are understanding what I'm saying there.
