A thief in Christchurch, New Zealand, was said to have left behind his name and contact details after robbing the cash register in a record store. The man, a long-time customer, had come up to the counter with a copy of a music CD.

He reportedly penned his name and personal information on a sticker pasted on the CD, which he requested to be held for him. And soon when the attendant went to help another client, the man leaned over the counter, opened the till, and grabbed money in full view of the store's eight surveillance cameras.
