I'm not sure Cops has filmed in Lewiston, Idaho, but there's probably not much to see there, especially when crimes are solved by reading the paper. Recently a wallet-snatcher might have avoided getting arrested, if he wasn't featured on the front page of the local newspaper. Michael Millhouse was painting a "Merry Christmas" sign and was lucky enough to get his picture taken for the paper. But Millhouse had also stolen a wallet and was caught on a surveillance camera. The pictures appeared right next to each other on the front page of the paper. Click here for a PDF version of the paper.Â
If convicted, the guy could get five years in prison. Brilliant.
