A Thief Wearing an Ankle Monitor Couldn’t Stop Robbing Ice Cream Shops

It makes sense to rob banks, because that’s where all the money is. But why make this your thing?

A guy in Grand Rapids, Michigan broke into a bunch of businesses last month, all of them ice cream shops.

In the span of a few days, he broke into eight different ice cream places and stole money. It’s not clear if he also stole any ice cream or not. A cop spotted his car one night, and they tracked him down a few days later. His name is Cameron Harris, and he’s 25 years old. They released him on bond last Thursday with an ankle monitor to track his movements until his trial. And here’s where it really gets dumb. Once he was out, he robbed three more ice cream shops. The GPS on his ankle monitor showed he was at all three stores when the break-ins happened. So they arrested him again. Now he’s facing charges for robbing 11 ice cream shops instead of eight.
