Clueless Thieves Steal Hollow Replica Phones

“Call it the case of the dead cells — both telephones and the ones in the brain. Employees at a Telefonica Movistar cell-phone store in Morelia, Mexico say they arrived Tuesday morning to find that the store had been broken into.

An examination of the shop revealed the only items missing were hollow replica phones for display that are completely useless for making calls.”

If these clowns weren’t able to discern that the hollow replica phones were too light to be real phones, I don’t think they have the smarts to activate a real stolen phone.

There were plenty of genuine phones , as well as cash, in another part of the shop. But the hapless crooks zeroed in on the fake phones. Perhaps they assumed that the feather-weight phones employed state-of-the-art nano technology that doesn’t weigh so much.

These inept criminals should stick to breaking into coin-operated pay phones.

If these idiots ever try to hold up the cell-phone store, the clerk should give them Monopoly money — they wouldn’t know the difference.
