hey, look at me! I’m stealing stuff.

Apparently, Robert Newton, 19, didn't quite understand the whole concept.  Seeing a quick way to get some free cameras, he decided to steal seven of them.

Robert failed to realize that security cameras take pictures.  As a result, the police got a wonderful series of photographs of Robert in action.

On the bright side, the police didn't need to take a mug shot.
