Smile, you’re on Candid Camera!

train-mugshot.jpgMany of y’all might be too young to remember “Candid Camera,” and that makes me feel sad. And old.

The image shows the thief moments after he had stolen a £200 silver necklace and bracelet from a 16-year-old boy.
Rather than escape, he decided to try on the jewellery, apparently unaware - or unconcerned - that he was being filmed by the camera he was gazing into.
The resulting image shows his face clearly.
Today, detectives appealed for anyone who can identify the mugger to come forward. (Source)

…Of course, this isn’t “Candid Camera” so much as “Don’t pose in front of an obvious camera with stolen goods in your hands, you fucking numb nuts.”

Speaking of which — numb nuts you say?
