Employee Allegedly Robs Own Store, Forgets Surveillance Camera Is on

Here's a good one for dumbcrooks.com

A woman working at a commercial store on the 2700 block of Mission Street had the brilliant idea of staging a fake robbery inside her own store. But her brilliance was quickly eclipsed by her idiocy when she forgot that this “robbery” would be caught on camera.

According to police, the woman, 19, called police to report that someone had robbed her at knifepoint at her place of work at about 8 a.m. on Monday. When police arrived, the employee gave officers her account of what happened, and they began investigating.

Part of that investigation included reviewing the store's surveillance camera, which apparently gave cops the real story, said Officer Albie Esparza.
