Burglar Busted by Busting a Move

Perhaps dancing your signature moves isn't the smartest thing to do while committing a burglary. Here's how police in Galveston, Texas, identified a possible burglary suspect:

Galveston Police Captain Jeff Heyse released the 38-second video on Wednesday which shows a young man briefly chatting with others before performing a short dance routine, which allowed them to identify a possible suspect.

"The 16-year-old juvenile suspect is known for his 'swag,' or signature dance move, and (he) does it in the hallways at school," Heyse stated in a press release obtained by the Galveston Daily News.

The footage was captured between 8 and 9 p.m. on March 27, when three men reportedly broke into an amphibious automobile that the touring company "Duck Tours" uses to drive sightseers along the streets of Galveston and ferry them across Galveston Bay, the paper reports.

"Three suspects somehow scaled the side of the vehicle and made entry into the emergency exit on the roof," Heyse said in the press release. "They sprayed the fire extinguisher inside the vehicle and subsequently stole the extinguisher."

Hilarious ! You can just imagine the guy admiring his moves on the evening news and then slowly realising that other people might be watching too. At least we get to laugh at these things sometimes ...
