Is it just me, or is there something extra dumb about students in Victoria, B.C.?
Two of them are facing break and enter charges after they stole a bag of Zellers-brand barbecue potato chips from a houses’ garage around 3:15 a.m. on Tuesday, reports the Times Colonist.
The home-owner’s Chihuahua alerted her to the crime in progress. Officers from three different detachments then converged to hunt down the thieves. Police dogs found a trail of munchies leading to some bushes. Hiding there were a pair of drunken and apologetic female students.
This isn’t the first time young people in Victoria have been charged with unimaginably stupid crimes.
In September, a 19-year-old woman for was arrested after she drove to a police station to bail out her boyfriend no more than half-an-hour after he was picked up from a University of Victoria party for drinking underage. She told the cops a taxi had dropped her off. Surveillance footage showed otherwise. She then tried to drive off but was pulled over and failed a breathalyzer test.
