This is security video of a couple of saps whose shoplifting experience couldnt’ have gone much worse if it tried.
Officials tell KTAR-FM that officers were called to a gas station for possible shoplifting at 6 p.m. Friday. Authorities say as officers arrived, the suspects, 28-year-old Marwan Al Ebadi and 29-year-old Salma Hourieh, took off running.
The pair ran along the side of a building and jumped a fence, despite a sign for “Peoria Police” above the door.
Security video shows Hourieh trying to hide under a bench before being placed in custody. Al Ebadi climbed back over the fence and was arrested on the street.
Maybe you miss the sign because you’re in a panic. I can handle that. But why in god’s name would you think you could get away by going back from whence you came? You left there for a reason. You’re trapped. It’s over.
Oh, there are drug charges amongst what they were dinged for? Never mind. We’re good.
