This dirtbag better get to shaving his head and beard and burning his clothes. There is NO WAY he won't be picked up. That pic is too clear and he obviously lives around town. Dum-arse!

What a dim bulb! He uses a credit card taken during a theft at a store that has cameras surveilling everything. Guess he's too busy stealing things to watch crime shows on TV. His parents will be so proud.
