Epic Fail of the Day: Man Robs Greenhouse, Gets Caught by Cucumber

Dumb burglar gets caught by a cucumber.

You’d think that a robber would have so much adrenaline flowing that they wouldn’t be thinking about food. Nope, not Billy Joe Donnelly who got busted in connection with burglarizing a greenhouse in Preston, England. According to the Huffington Post, Donnelly took a bite out of a cucumber during his heist and his DNA is what led to his arrest.

Basically, he was caught by a cucumber. #Fail. He also burglarized a home that was next door to the greenhouse and has previous burglary and theft convictions. He was sentenced to two and-a-half years behind bars.

Cue sad violin, because that was just dumb. He probably bit into it and then left it out in the open.
