      Fleeing shoplifter forgets son

      AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A shoplifter looking to make a quick getaway from a Dutch supermarket after stealing a packet of meat left police a crucial piece of evidence -- his 12-year-old son.

      In his haste the 45-year-old thief made a solo dash to his car, batting away a supermarket worker who had flung himself on the vehicles' bonnet in a bid to stop the escape.

      Police in the southern Dutch town of Kerkrade said they managed to contact the thief via the boy, but he had refused to return and collect his son. The man told officers to get hold of the youngster's mother instead.

      The thief later turned himself in Thursday, a police spokeswoman said.

      Maybe the suspect was just trying to barter with the store? You know, a pkg of meat for a pre-teen. You can't blame the guy for trying to get something for his 12 year old. After all, when he becomes a teenager he'll be worthless.

      You underestimate the value of a ready-to-use compatible organ donor.

      Serious contender for the "stupid crook" award. Unfortunately he failed to steal a large enough amount to be especially stupid, and he didn't get hurt.
