Stolen bag of Milky Ways and a trail of wrappers leading through the woods straight to a trailer park. Really brilliant criminals here.

Edit. That's what you deserve for littering

Edit2. I hate thieves and littering equally.

About two decades ago, mum worked in a small shop and they got robbed (in the night, nobody there), thieves stole some washing powder. Which was leaking and the powder line led the cops straight into the nearest apartment building, then to the exact door...


pichael288 t1_iud1wmc wrote

Is "washing powder" what British people call laundry detergent?


Sahqon t1_iud29gs wrote

Yeah, the old version in powder form. Which doesn't get used much nowadays, what with the capsules.

Edit: but I did a direct translation, I had to specify it was the white powder/granules thing cause otherwise it would not make much sense.


TheDieselTastesFire t1_iud2y3a wrote

>robbed (in the night, nobody there)

Remember that robbery is a crime of force committed against a person. I really don't mean to be a pedant, but depending on the state maybe they got burglarized or someone broke and entered and committed theft. Also maybe someone pooped in their toilet tank. Anything is possible.

It's actually a well known fact that twixes always self orient. So if the right side of a twix is facing right, its a right twix. If the left is facing left then it's left.

PM_ME_PARR0TS t1_iue7jkp wrote

I'm currently taking a thief to court who has stolen many things - and broken various laws - while she used to live for free on part of my property.

(Her responsibility was maintaining fences and pastures, and paying her own utilities. She did none of that.)

She went out of her way to sabotage things, steal furniture, etc.

You know what she left behind?

  • A full set of cleaning supplies.

  • A full set of gardening supplies.

  • Tons of great dog stuff.

  • Cattle equipment. It wasn't hers, but she stole a few pieces...and left the rest? One of them was an entire structure, so it's not like she was just trying to be sneaky and not push her luck.

  • Cookware. Including a big ol pot that probably cost a bit.

  • Tools. A bunch.

  • Their $90 modem.

  • Various other things that are in complete working condition?

She spent a month doing dumb shit like pulling the wires out of the water heater. Then left half her shit here instead of taking it to her own property.

She's also posting videos on social media that completely give away her baby daddy's workers comp fraud. Lol.

Thieves don't seem to be the brightest bunch. Glad the ones on your end got caught.

Imagine being an investigator. Your weeks of stake outs, interrogations and connecting the dots brings you to these woods. You know they're up to something out here you just don't know where. Your work is cut out for you but you need to get this case wrapped up. You walk a few steps and find a candy wrapper... nothing out of the ordinary but then you notice another candy wrapper... same wrapper that's interesting, who's eating these? It's a long shot but you start looking for more. You find these wrappers are peppered about the ground as you continue following, thinking to yourself surely there's no way. You can't help but start smirking in disbelief, surely nobody is this stupid, it's like out of a children's TV show. You continue walking down the path until you stumble upon a trailer park with the people you're looking for in plain sight. You stand shocked, unsure if it was sheer luck that those milky way bars made their way to the hands of these dumbasses. You snap some pics and report back. It sounds so fucking comical it could very well be the plot of some PBS kids show.
