    Chicago's Dumbest Thief

    Bernie Tafoya Reporting
    CHICAGO (WBBM) -- Chicago Police say no one could make this story up...

    A 18-year-old man entered a muffler shop in the 2600 block of North Laramie Avenue yesterday and declared a robbery. He allegedly waved a gun around and demanded money, according to police.

    When he was told the money was in a safe and that the manager who knew how to open it was not there, the suspect had a brilliant idea; at least he thought it was brilliant.

    He gave the shop employees his cell phone number and asked them to call him when the manager arrived so he could open the safe for him.

    The man left and the employees opted to call 911. Authorities stationed plain clothes officers in the shop and called the would-be robber back.

    The suspect showed up again, and waved his gun around again, but this time was shot in the leg by an officer.

    The man had surgery at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and is said to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

    One officer with 20 years on the force, said this is one of the more “unusual” cases he’s seen.

    I'd say there's a very good chance of that...
