This Week's 'Dumbest Criminal' Award Goes To...

Is it just us or are sneaker crims getting dumber? Honestly, there’s never been anything clever about pulling a pair of shoes off someone's feet, particularly when it’s three-on-one. But this trio of chumps from Queens have taken mindless street crime to a whole new level.

A group of opportunistic thieves bearing a striking resemblance to the Three Stooges – Larry with the high-top fade, Curly with the close crop and, of course, Moe in red – were seen overpowering a teenager for a pair of Off-White Jordans in some footage that popped up earlier this week. Three on one – tough guys, right? But it gets better. They immediately decided to cash out on a hard day's work and headed down to Queens consignment store Image, only to be told the shoes were fakes! And if the whole fiasco weren’t embarrassing enough, their faces are now plastered all over the internet.

So the moral of this story? Who knows. Don’t be a douche? Either way, we’re sure these three are going to have a hard time shaking off their newfound rep as the dumbest crims in Queens.
