They say thieves return to the scene of the crime, but they shouldn’t do it in the middle of a news story about a rash of thefts at said scene.

While giving an interview with a local TV station about a series of robberies in his store, a supermarket manager in Florida notices one of the goons on the premises and proceeds to catch him while the cameras record the whole thing.

Lenin Ubiera-Cruz runs to catch the suspect and throws him down, where the thug tries to plead his innocence in a rather NSFW exchange, to no avail.

The man was arrested and pleaded no contest to petty theft.
