Toms River, NJ, police said that last Saturday afternoon, Christopher Miller went to a shoe store and demanded cash from the two employees. He eventually took the whole cash register with $389 inside and fled on foot.
Police tracked him down quickly enough. They found the employee’s cell phones in a shopping center trash can and the money was stashed in a downspout in the back of a building.
What makes this such a DUMB CRIME is that Miller had just gotten out of prison that very same day after serving a 15-year sentence for robbing the very same store back in 1999.
Miller, 40, reportedly took a bus in Atlantic City after being released, rode 50 miles upstate, and re-enacted his original crime. But he got the same result.
He was charged with robbery and is being held at the Ocean County jail on $100,000 bail.
