Stupid Criminal Files: Jack in the Box Robber Arrested When He Returns to Restaurant...for Food

Some criminals can't help but to return to the scene of their crime. In San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood yesterday, the man suspected of attempting to rob a Jack in the Box the day before came back to where the failed heist almost went down. Why? He was hungry. Bonus: The cops were already there.

Police were at the fast food location as part of the investigation, says LA Now, and when the manager spotted 30-year-old Shawn Dustin Page in line to order, he pointed the suspect out to the cops. Page was arrested "without incident, or fast food."

Perhaps not the most brilliant of masterminds, Page apparently is also "suspected of robbing the same Wells Fargo Bank branch twice."
