Ah, the benefits of a well thought out plan

Thanks to YZGuise for bringing this one to my attention.

Apparently over the weekend, somebody spent too much time watching Snatch or Ocean's 11 or Thomas Crown Affair or any other number of movies with well thought out plans for stealing a big score. Unfortunately for him, this would-be-thief failed to pay attention to the part in the movies where the crooks come up with a well thought out plan that includes properly identifying the target.

The thief wandered into Black Diamond Equipment during the weekend night shift wielding an ice pick and demanding precious metal and money. He didn't bother to take the time to learn that Black Diamond Equipment doesn't actually deal in jewelry, but rather in outdoor recreation equipment.

He did apparently make off with some computers and climbing gear, but I don't think he'll be retiring on his score.
