Robber Came Back to Starbucks for Coffee, Got Arrested Instead

Bad idea: Robbing a Starbucks
Really bad idea: Returning to the scene of the crime (for coffee, no less) ...
Neatorama-worthy: ... in the same clothing you wear when you robbed the place, and while the cops are there to interview the employees!

Vying for this year's Stupidest Criminal Award is David Howard Isberg,
a 42-year-old Boulder man who really, really liked his coffee:

Police said David Howard Isberg on Tuesday walked into the Starbucks in the 2400 block of Baseline Road at about 11:45 a.m. and stood in the customer line wearing yellow gloves, a red backpack and wire-rimmed glasses — clothing the suspect had on when the same Starbucks and a nearby King Soopers grocery store were robbed Sunday night.

Detective Kurt Foster was in the coffee shop Tuesday to meet with employees and interview the manager when he noticed Isberg, whose physical features also matched the man suspected in the weekend robberies.
