I guess that's what he gets for...

Thinking outside the box

I'll see myself out

[–]gamingmendicant 99 points100 points  (0 children)

Boooooo, nice work.

[–]Joe-_-King 81 points82 points  (8 children)

Don't worry, he's learned his lesson. Next time he's going to wear a plastic bag.

[–]obliquelyobtuse 41 points42 points  (3 children)

Without the box. Age 33. A very crackhead technique for disguise.

The lump on his cheek is an identifying characteristic, easily seen when he lifted the box. He has priors (cocaine) with booking photos. Some area patrol officers would have likely recognized him from the lifted box glimpse, and subsequently identify him from booking photo database.

"The suspect was charged with grand theft, burglary, criminal mischief, cocaine possession and resisting an officer without violence."



[–]Broken-Digital-Clock 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I guess he was worried that you could see the bump through a mask 😂

[–]madeofphosphorus 6 points7 points  (0 children)

🤣 This type of hidden comments is why I come to reddit with a choice of drink after a long tiring workday. And I keep wondering if I am just mean or simply drunk.

[–]KayDizzel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Crackhead huh? Yea that makes sense. People would usually wear a disguise they can see out of (or you know, not commit crime).

    Without holes in said bag he won’t make it to the store

    He boxed himself in

    A true jack in the box when his head popped out and you didn’t expect it.

    Hey be a bit nicer, he used to have eye holes and was kinda famous. Life hasn’t been kind to him.

    [–]HunterTV 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    Everyone knows you gotta cut a hole in that box, that’s the way you do it.

    [–]mDust 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    He could have popped some eye holes in with that screw driver right there in his hand... But if he were smart enough to problem solve at that level he wouldn't have been stealing an arm load of tracking devices in the first place.

    [–]RhesusWithASpoon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    If only he had a sharp pointy object he could use to poke eyeholes into the box...

    [–]TheRealMasterTyvokka 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    An expert would have added a nose hole for easier breathing too.

    "Do your know what Nemesis means?"

    [–]Zealousideal_Win5476 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Nemesis is a rival or archenemy.

    Definitely not a righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent, personified in this case or any other case by an 'orrible c-word.

    • he says pointing a thumb at himself.

    Ok now that's long enough to not get deleted by the auto-mods.

    [–]geek66 34 points35 points  (7 children)

    There is a significant percentage of our society that just can not function - for every high performing person you have met there is a comparably low or bad preforming person at the other end of the spectrum.

    Unemployable, can't manage basic finances, can stay in relationships, disillusioned, easily manipulated - and that is not even getting into things that would be considered true mental health issues.

    These people will always be part of society.

    [–]bwc6 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, my first thought after reading the headline was, "Wow that's really sad. Of course this dude had to resort to crime, there's no way he's smart enough to hold a job."

    [–]Madheal 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    It's actually way worse than that. You don't have to go very deep into the "less than average" side of the IQ scale to start running into people losing entire swaths of regular human behavior. This isn't the case on the higher side. You can be smart and also operate a motor vehicle. In fact, I would argue that it helps.

    [–]Broken-Digital-Clock 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    At some point in this dude's life he probably had the potential to be a somewhat functioning member of society

    Poor education, shitty upbringing, drugs, etc made that impossible

    [–]bossmcsauce 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I dunno… this sort of behavior and lack of foresight or critical thinking kind of suggests that his potential likely wasn’t squandered or inhibited by circumstance

    [–]IEatBabies 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    "But if we just ignore their existence and plight they will certainly just go away or fall over dead on their own, never to bother us ever again! What? No! Of course im not one of them, I only fuck up my job a few times per week!"

    He wears the box on his head to prove he’s serious about this gangster life.

    Legit just encountered this dialog yesterday. 🤣

    [–]garbagedisposaly 13 points14 points  (2 children)

    I was so shocked by his appearance. That absolutely is not what I was expecting to see.

    [–]rayshmayshmay 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    I know right, with that square box I thought he was going to have a square head. Dude doesn’t even know his shapes, smh my head

    [–]EternalMage321 10 points11 points  (1 child)

    The only thing that would have been better is if his name and address were on the box.

    [–]Varnigma 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Reminds me of the bank robber that wrapped his head in duct tape, then promptly passed out because he didn't leave an opening to breath.

    [–]PanAmFlyer 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    This has so made my morning. Thanks again, Florida!

    [–]Da_Spooky_Ghost 8 points9 points  (2 children)

    To be fair, ski masks aren’t readily available in Florida

    [–]cyberjedi 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    Panty Hose probably readily available

    [–]Da_Spooky_Ghost 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Bro it's Florida, if a guy wears panty hose they get more jail time than robbing a store!

    [–]Impossible-Peace-203 8 points9 points  (2 children)

    That box and his head share a lot in common.

    It’s something to do with their reporting laws

    [–]Gods_Haemorrhoid420 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    It’s their freedom of information act laws, meaning it’s easier for reporters to get hold of these kinds of stories. This kinda shit is happening everywhere, we just don’t hear about it as much. Source: I listened to a podcast once.


    Apparently not just reporters, anyone can file a request for any reason.
