However, that old saying ‘crime doesn’t pay’ rings very true. Don’t believe me?

10. Robber Hands Over His Phone Number
This is probably one of the funniest ones I have heard, but hey, a guys got to do what a guys got to do when he’s desperate, right? Well in this case, I actually think they guy went a little too far. In 2008, Ruben Zarate was 18 years old and decided that he wanted to go out and rob a muffler shop in the city of Chicago. So far, everything sounds normal and he actually makes it into the store.

The cashiers tell him that most of the money is inside the safe and nobody but the manager can open the safe. And here is where Ruben messes up, he decides he will try again later and leaves his cell phone number with the cashiers with the instructions to call upon the manager’s arrival. When they did call him back, he was greeted by the police waiting to arrest him.
