Stupid Crook: Chowchilla Tire Store Security Camera Catches Him

Posted:
CHOWCHILLA, Calif. (KMPH) -

A not  so bright crook breaks into the cash drawer at a Chowchilla Tire Shop during business hours. But the thief made one major mistake. He looked directly into the surveillance camera.

The manager of TF Tire and Service in Chowchilla Danny Tribble is hoping you can help him catch a crook.  Tuesday afternoon about 2:30 a man wearing a sport coat dropped by the tire shop office and began talking to an employee.  But Tribble says he was actually sizing up the place.  "Come back in with a tool and pried open my cash drawer."

The security camera caught him breaking into the cash drawer.  That's because when he changed the position of the camera he didn't go high enough.

The tire store in Chowchilla has been hit three times in the last 2 and a half years.   Tribble says enough is enough.  They're offering a $500 reward hoping someone will come forward. 

TF Tire and Service in Chowchilla is one of 12 tire stores in the chain that stretches across Central California.  Dave Schlaepfer says the company wants this guy caught. "As a business we take a stand very strongly against this and any type of theft we should go after and prosecute it."

No one at the Chowchilla store recognized the thief.  The store manager is hoping one of our viewers has seen him before and will contact police.  If you have any information you should call Chowchilla Police at (559) 665–8600.
