The Tulsa Police Department is crediting a burglar's colorful SpongeBob shorts and socks for his arrest after a spate of burglaries.
Edward Price is suspected of committing five burglaries in his apartment complex over the past three months. In several of these cases, the burglar was seen wearing the SpongeBob shorts and socks in question.
Burglars usually wear all black. But apparently, Price did not get the memo, instead opting for some of the most obvious clothing he could find.
Instead of stealing Krabby Patties, Price was stealing electronics, guns, and ammunition, much of which was found in his apartment (along with the SpongeBob shorts).
According to WBRC News, Price, who is a formerly convicted felon, is being charged with three counts of second-degree burglary, knowingly concealing stolen property, and possession of a firearm.
I know there are a lot of great people out there who love SpongeBob for one reason or another, but you have to admit, the IQ of the average SpongeBob fan is not on the higher end of the spectrum.
Twenty years after the show aired, I think I can fully appreciate why my parents did not let me watch SpongeBob as a child. Parents take note.
