Gas bagged

Today's tip for budding criminal masterminds: When stealing gasoline from a parked car, it's really better if the car isn't an undercover police vehicle. Parked outside the cop's house. While the cop is home.

Two teens in Dover, DE, were arrested after a neighbor alerted the policeman to the theft under way outside.

Extra points: One of the teens sped away in his vehicle, dragging the cop for a good distance before eventually being captured following a high-speed chase.

Double extra points: Once he was caught, the teen gave up his partner -- who had escaped on foot -- by providing police with his cell phone number. They called and persuaded the other kid to turn himself in.
