I guess you can't really blame this guy for trying to squeeze as much money as possible out of his crime.
The cops in Palmview, Texas had a warrant out last month for a 19-year-old guy named Brandon Diaz. He was wanted for felony theft for stealing about $3,000 worth of jewelry from a family member (stealing from your own family? What a winner!)
A few weeks ago, the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Department posted about him on their Crime Stoppers Facebook page, and they offered up a $1,000 reward for any tips that led to him getting arrested.
And Brandon himself responded to the Facebook post asking, "Can I get my own reward?" Then he put three "laughing so hard I'm crying" emojis.
The cops responded to him, "We will see you very soon" . . . and they did. They caught Brandon last week . . . and even followed up on their Facebook post by putting up a picture of him cuffed in a police car
He did not receive the reward. LOL!
