From time to time, I've included a stupid criminal or two in my news round-ups posts (which should probably return next week, if there is anything actually, you know, newsworthy going on). Today, I present a criminal so stupid that he gets his own post.
This is the moment when a mugger provided police with an unmistakable clue to his identity - by admiring his reflection in the lens of a CCTV camera.God love his pointy little head...
The image shows the thief moments after he had stolen a £200 silver necklace and bracelet from a 16-year-old boy.
Rather than escape, he decided to try on the jewellery, apparently unaware - or unconcerned - that he was being filmed by the camera he was gazing into.
