Tin foil may stop Chinese satellites from mind controlling you into liking all the Justin Beiber videos on YouTube, but it’s not nearly as effective for larceny, as 23-year-old Tabatha Edington of Prescott, Arizona learned the hard way.
According to Prescott’s PD, the woman (pictured right) tried to make off with 9 new PlayStation 3 games by wrapping them in tin foil to fool the scanners at the front door. Thankfully it was hard for the store managers not to notice a person wrapping the games in tin foil and casually putting them into a shopping cart. After a brief chat with the police, where the woman is said to have been uncooperative, yelling profanities and reaching into her purse for a 6-inch kitchen knife, Tabatha is now in the slammer with a burglary charge, which was upgraded from shoplifting since she had no means to pay for the games.
The 9 games had a combined value of $594.
