A 23-year-old Nicholas Allegretto from Cambridge, England was arrested on charges of theft on Wednesday. How police caught him though is quite hilarious and makes for an awesome Funny Friday news story. 

According to the Cambridge News, Allegretto stole an engineering magnet from a hardware store. What he didn't realize was that the store had security cameras that caught the whole thing.

The store owner ended up turning over the footage to police in order to try to find the thief. However, Allegretto also made a trip to the police station before he was even called in for questioning to complain that the store was circulating his photo all over. He claims the store did not have his permission to use his picture.

Needless to say, the police arrested him and he was just convicted of the theft.
