There’s no such thing as the perfect crime, but some criminals are clearly more perfect than others. According to UT San Diego, a man wearing latex gloves and sunglasses recently strolled into a Chase Bank in San Diego, pointed a gun at a teller and began demanding money. The teller wisely obliged, handing over $2,920 in cash before the robber took to his vehicle and fled in a white Ford Expedition. Onlookers were quick to jot down the vehicle’s vanity license plate, which read ALMDUDE. It didn’t take police long to track down the vehicle’s owner, 27-year-old Robert Alm.  While we’re not surprised to hear of a their using their own vehicle to flee a crime scene, using one with vanity plates proudly proclaiming the thief’s name is something new. Alm has since been booked on suspicion of robbery.
