Maybe he was running low on data and wanted to upload a few photos from the scene of the crime? A burglar in California woke up the couple of the house he was robbing to ask them for their Wi-Fi password.
The unnamed 17-year-old has been accused of several thefts in the Palo Alto area, but this one takes the cake.
The couple in their 60s were able to chase the suspect, who ran off with two kitchen knives after climbing through an open window.
Police eventually found the suspect and he's been charged with residential burglary, prowling and providing false information to an officer.
Is this the dumbest criminal ever? Have you heard of stupider?
