He took several television sets, a few bottles of alcohol and a laptop from the woman’s home.

Though, the Schmids were shocked that the teen actually returned to the crime scene to sell the stolen laptop back to the woman. He wanted $40 bucks. Thinking on her toes, she asked the teen to return the next day for the money. When he did, the cops were waiting to arrest him.
“He’s gotta be really stupid to come back,” Stephanie told Fox 2. Well, given Detroit’s limited police services nowadays, residents have to depend on stupid criminals to help the cops make their collars.
By the way, the woman got her laptop back. But the television sets were sold and the alcohol was consumed.
