Guys steal Credit Card, use it for Photo Booth-Pix

Jemand hat einer Dame die Kreditkarte geklaut und kam dann auf die glorreiche Idee, damit ein paar Fun-Fotos in einem Fotoautomaten zu schießen. Der Automat speicherte die Bilder auf einer Festplatte und lieferte den Cops so ein paar wunderbare Fahndungsfotos.

According to police, the victim reported that she had misplaced her plastic last week while shopping in Crofton, a town 25 miles south of Baltimore. The woman called cops after realizing that her card was used to fraudulently purchase tickets at a Regal Cinemas theater. A subsequent review of surveillance video revealed “a group of teenagers purchasing tickets from a movie ticket kiosk,” according to the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

The same teens also piled into a “photo booth located inside the theater lobby” and posed for a series of pictures. The adjacent images (click to enlarge), released today by cops, apparently were stored digitally on the booth’s computer hardware.
