Usually, the City of Seattle serves as a national embarrassment with its nonsensical leftist policies, redeemed only by its abundance of flowing java. This story goes into the “plus” column, right alongside coffee culture. Ten points to you, Emerald City. Specifically your posse of coppers who just had the best day as they busted stupid criminals trying to score some merch at Costco.
Loss-prevention officers recognized what was going on inside the Costco store around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and called police.
The suspects were gathering up laptops and other items, preparing to escape out a fire exit. A getaway driver was waiting outside.
Police got in position and waited until the would-be thieves came through the fire doors.
“Waited in position” is an understatement. They stood by the doors shaking in eager anticipation, peeing themselves with glee. Watch the video again and tell me I’m wrong. If this isn’t the best day these officers had, I don’t know what is. Not even a full year’s worth of free Starbuck’s lattes would measure up to the glory of this bust.
Police arrested the 30-year-old man and 21-year-old woman. The 18-year-old getaway driver was also arrested.
Investigators believe they hit a different Costco earlier the same day– -stealing more than $2,000 worth of electronics.
That’s some loot. Some laptops, Kirkland-Signature cheese. Seven vats of coconut oil. How many hot dogs and sodas though?
Here’s the part where I drop in insightful commentary telling you why this matters: because it’s fun, that’s why. Baby Driver and his cadre of dummies got greedy. Rather than paying up and walking through the receipt-check line, they decided to kipe some merchandise. Only to get busted in glorious fashion. Caught on multiple cameras. Body cams. So far, I’m a fan.
