According to Delaware River and Bay Authority police Cpl. Joseph DiStefano, at about 10 p.m. Wednesday, Branden M. Tingey walked into the men’s room of the Polidoro Italian Grill near New Castle and hid in the ceiling until the restaurant closed.
When he decided the place was empty, Tingey went into the manager’s office where he tried to break into the safe.
The problem was, DiStefano said, Tingey apparently didn’t know how, and turned to the restaurant’s computer to search for instructions. The search was interrupted when the restaurant’s two managers, who had been in another part of the restaurant doing paperwork, walked in, police said.
Well, it’s the dumb ones who get caught.
