[Ed. – Another contender for the title world’s dumbest thief.]
A car thief was caught by Orange County officers after he was distracted by the solar eclipse.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says that the 22-year-old, identified as Jocsan Feliciano Rosado, stole a vehicle and was being followed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office intrepid Auto Theft Unit.
He reportedly parked the stolen car at Harbor Freight on Osceola Parkway in Kissimmee. He also was said to have brought a welder’s mask to safely view the solar eclipse.
