Credit Card Thief Caught Thanks To His Name Tag

The list of robbers who have gotten busted thanks to really dumb mistakes chalks up another name.

A suspected credit card thief might have gotten away with his caper back in March had he not been wearing what looks like a work shirt with his name tag still attached.

Seen on security camera footage, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office announced on Thursday that Chris Thomason had been caught earlier this week and will face felony identity theft charges.

Taking to Facebook, the department boasted, “You helped us ID him within 20 minutes!”

Which other dumb ways have you heard criminals getting caught?
