Two dumb crooks who broke into the Dollar General store in Aiken were caught after returning to the store for more, authorities said.
The pair had apparently broken into a vacant business and made a hole in a shared wall near the cosmetics section of the Dollar General store to get inside, where they stole cigarettes and other items, police say.
“Both suspects were found to have items matching what had been reported stolen during the burglary in their possession,” a press release says. “Investigators believe the suspects were not aware of the police presence in front of the business, and were returning to the incident location for another round of theft.”
Both subjects are currently being held in the Aiken County Detention Center.
