Thieves Should Plan Ahead

Recently a criminally-minded master thief in Paris nearly got away with stealing a number of exquisite paintings from the from the Louvre.

However, after cleverly planning the crime, including successfully getting in and out past heavy security, he was captured only 2 blocks away when his Econoline ran out of gas.

"I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."
