A thief returned to the scene of the crime after realizing he dropped his phone during the robbery.
Police say two women were robbed from a nail supply store in Murrieta, California. One of them returned to the store a few minutes later to ask for his dropped cell phone. The store owner offered to return the device if the thief handed over the stolen goods, but the suspect pushed the man away and fled.
The two suspects stole goods worth about 220,000 Hungarian forints, which, according to Murrieta police, is less than the value of the suspect’s forgotten phone, in which case they also found his driver’s license and credit card.
The alleged perpetrators, identified as 24-year-old Kaydrianna Hall and 19-year-old Serenade Banks, fled the scene in a black car. Minutes later, police arrested the two suspects, about a kilometer and a half from the store, in front of their house, and found the stolen goods in the car.
Both women were sent to prison, but after paying nearly 2 million Hungarian forints, they were able to defend themselves free.
