ActiveRain - Can We Make Someone Famous?


     At 5am this morning, this "gentleman" decided it would be a good idea to rob a few businesses within our building.  Unfortunately, we were a target.  He broke in, stole several personal items from employees (including cash and bags) and laptops.  Thankfully, the laptops are the equivalent of expensive bricks at this point since our security measures allow us to remotely wipe them clean.  So there's not a potential for a lot of damage, but I'm sure those who lost personal items and cash (one of my colleagues had a substantial amount of cash stolen) would love to see this person meet up with the police very soon.San Ramon Thief


     Police are involved, and thanks again to our security measures, we've got a pretty nice shot of the guy.  What can you do to help?  SHARE!  Here is a facebook post to share , and please reblog away.  This guy did such a good job of getting in front of the camera, I think it's only right to make him famous!


     I'm sure the other business he broke into would also appreciate seeing him apprehended, so friends (especially those in the bay area) and strangers, let's make this thief famous!


     So friends, please share, share, share, and if anyone happens to recognize this fine citizen, please let us know so we can introduce him to our local police friends who would also love to sit and chat with him for a bit.  Especially if you're in the bay area (we're in San Ramon, CA), help us track this clown down.

This guy should be on the dumb criminals show. Good luck on finding him and you will from this good shot.

Gary 'Banana' Houghtaling the first thing I said was "the idiot may as well have smiled for the camera".  Hoping the shot helps us find him.

I am sure the police will find him.  They no doubt have facial recognition software, and he will be sitting in jail.  A

John Meussner, not a bright individual for sure, not even as a thief. Hope he'll be caught soon.

John Meussner You know that this crime is a piece of cake for the police to solve. I am sure they have a pretty good idea of who this perp is and where he hangs out. What a loser!

We'll certainly hope so.  Will look forward to hearing when he's caught.

John- let's see what we can do to make him famous...perhaps a starring role in Dumb and Dumber.

Maybe dumb'est' with how he walked right into our cameras

I'm betting the police will snare this bozo before too long.

Hoping so, he wasn't too bright in hiding his identity

Hi John --- someone "out there" will recognize him.  Hopefully many will step forward and identify this guy.  I'm sorry this happened to you and your colleagues.

That's what we're hoping!  Thanks Michael!

Well we've got his mug on camera, and got his prints, so hopefully we'll have him soon

Obviously the guy is into designer labels and has to steal. He is also dumber than a post not to disguise himself.

Right?  He looks like he robbed a foot locker before coming here

With all the facial recognition software out there, I'm sure there is already a name associated with this clown.  Sorry you all had to endure his thievery.

Hi John - Apparently not a member of the criminal mastermind class. I'd guess his odds of getting away clean are pretty poor. I hope you all get your stuff back, or at least the pleasure of seeing justice done.
