Ya hey…if there was a SA’s Dumbest Criminals television show this chap woulda been the choice of the week. You see our mastermind decided to rob some poor guy in Pretoria at knife-point and stole his cell phone, jacket and made him go withdraw R1000 from an ATM. Standard criminal procedure in SA except for one thing…he then uploaded a pic of himself to the victims Whatsapp profile on the stolen phone. Needless to say the owner was quickly alerted by his contacts that a new profile pic was added and he identified the guy as the one who had robbed him.
If that is indeed the thief in question then a brief slow clap is in order.
Hope they catch his dumb ass.
“Lohan van Heerden, 20, a second year actuarial science student at the University of Pretoria, could not believe his eyes when the very thief who had stolen his phone the night before uploaded a picture of himself, dressed up in a suit and tie.” [News24]
Either that or he is just confident that our police won’t catch him even if they have a clear pic.
