Say, “cheese” Einstein

You'd think crooks would have figured out by now there's cameras everywhere.

But apparently not.

Take this Einstein, for example.

Notice how he walked up to the Spokane espresso stand, placed an order and even looked up at the surveillance camera while waiting for his beverage to be prepared, but covered half of his face only after informing the barista that he's actually there to rob the place?

The robber got away this morning with an undisclosed amount of cash — and a cup of coffee.

Spokane police are asking for the public's help identifying the robber, and are hoping anyone with information about the robbery will call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233. There's practically a full facial image about 6 seconds in to the video. FYI.
