I’m not one to insult people, but stupid criminals seem to be getting stupider in 2013.
For 45-year-old Chuck Echevarria from Amherst, New York, the New Year didn’t get off to a very good start. Marking perhaps a new low for stupid criminals, Chuck waltzed into a big box store, took a cart and proceeded to fill it with over $1,700 worth of Dyson vacuums.
Then, he brazenly pushed his cart right outside without paying, walking right past several security cameras in the process. The footage posted on YouTube not only shows a clear view of his face, but also of the license plate on his vehicle.
It’s no surprise that this king of stupid criminals was quickly arrested. In fact, his antics had already landed him in jail in Pennsylvania on different charges.
So what did Chuck steal? A lot of different things, but most of his loot consisted of Dyson vacuums of all things. This has earned him the title of the Dyson thief in local media coverage around Amherst.
We personally think that walking out of a store with a cart full of merchandise and your face in plain view is pretty foolish, but Chuck’s choice of merchandise to target is even dumber to us. If the Dyson thief was going to steal a vacuum, we can’t understand why he’d pass up higher quality models like the Shark Navigator and go for a Dyson instead.
Obviously, Chuck didn’t plan his heist too well, and he didn’t bother to research what he was stealing either. Just one look at Shark vacuum reviews online would have told him that in the Dyson vs Shark debate, Shark vacuums always come out on top.
If you’re making the Dyson vs Shark decision for yourself, we hope you’ll look into the matter more carefully than the good old Dyson thief did. You can check out the Shark Navigator and other Shark vacuums at GoVacuum.com and see for yourself why choosing a Dyson vs a Shark makes stupid criminals even stupider.
Plus, when you’re ready to buy one of our new Shark vacuums, you’re sure to love the price. They’re practically a steal.
