You Should Definitely Return To The Scene Of The Crime If You Left Your Baby Behind

You’re not supposed to come back after you’ve done a wrongful deed, but if you happen to leave behind something you might need later, say, your baby, it’s a good idea to return to the scene of the crime. A shoplifting couple in Catalonia, Spain, were busted when they stopped by to pick up their precious cargo. says the were at a bookstore near Barcelona slipping items into their bags and clothing. They ran off when they realized they’d been caught with sticky fingers, but forgot that they’d left a stroller with their baby inside at the store.

You know the feeling, when you rush out of your home and feel like you totally forgot something. Except in this case, it was a tiny human of their own making.

When they returned later in the day (why not take your time, eh?) to pick up the little one, cops arrested them on the spot. Employees had called the police after the alleged shoplifting, and they were in custody of the baby.
