It would seem that some people are just not cut out for a life of crime. Alejandro Juarez, of Aguascalientes, Mexico, saw an opportunity when he saw an unoccupied car parked with the keys still in the ignition. He explained his thinking in a report from Agence France-Presse, “When I found the car and I saw it had the key in the ignition, well, I just got in. I was thinking about taking off the tyres so I could sell them”. However, while driving the car away he crashed into a rubbish dumpster and was apprehended. Mr Juarez might have stood more chance of pulling off this heist if the car had not been painted in the distinctive colours of Aguacalientes’ Police Department.
