Shoplifter Use’s Play-Doh To Circumvent Security Camera, And Leaves Fingerprint Behind!!

Here’s one for the “stupid criminals” category, a local police department likely got some damning evidence from the very item used to get away with a crime.

Recently, a shoplifter tried to find a way around the security device at a Leicester store by pressing some Play-Doh into it. That’s right, the bright, squishy toy you played with as a kid to shape animals and fake food.

The shoplifter pressed the Doh into the camera to block it, leaving a fingerprint behind. Not only did the blockage not work too well, but there’s a perfectly pressed fingerprint for police to work with to identify.

The print is being processed to identify the suspect, said Leicester police.
