simple mind. simple arrest.

A simple story about a stupid thief:

Last week, police in Iowa City, Iowa arrested a man who stole a credit card from an unlocked apartment last month.

Last week, the man used the stolen card to buy a latte at a coffee shop. Then, he purchased cigarettes at a tobacco store. Later, he used the card in two other locations. He was turned down at one location because the card came up as "stolen."

The arrest was actually quite a simple thing for the police. It seems that the credit-card-thief signed his own name on each of the receipts.

He has been arrested and charged with unauthorized credit card use.
