Dumb Chick Falls For Trick

`A New Zealand thief was nabbed after being lured back to the scene of her crime to claim a “lucky shopper” prize. [..]

Police in the North Island city of Palmerston North couldn’t identify Adams.

So shop owner Wayne Garrand put up her picture in the store window with the words “This Week’s Lucky Shopper” – such competitions are common in New Zealand.

“I just thought, ‘Bugger it, let’s give this a try’,” Mr Gerrand told the Dominion Post newspaper.

Adams and a friend came into the store wanting to claim her prize and gave her name and address to Mr Gerrand, who passed it on to police.’
