Busted!

Another shoplifter. This time our villain gets away with a laptop. Although this is got to be one of the dumbest criminals alive. He comes into the store selling 2GB sticks of laptop memory. To give you an idea, this memory is what they are using in new computers. Jeff is checking the memory out as this guy sees the laptop. Actually it's a very small "netbook" and is a perfect target to steal. He calls his buddy to come into the shop to create

a shield but just before he steals the netbook, Jeff asks him for his identification. We verify identity on anyone selling to us. This guy hands Jeff his wallet and then commits the crime. Duh!

5 days later he sends in a girl who again tries to sell memory. Since we already know what's up, Jeff offers her $5.00 total for 5 sticks of 2GB laptop memory. This is $250 retail! She calls someone and then says to Jeff, "You gave us $25 per stick the other day" thereby connecting herself to the crime. Duh!

As Jeff starts asking her questions, she gets scared and leaves without getting the memory. Jeff is "on the ball" as he quickly reacts and gets the make and model and license plate of her vehicle.

Good job again Jeff!
