Front Page Coincidence

Getting your picture on the front page of your local newspaper can be a good thing or a bad thing. In Michael Millhouse's case, it was a little of each.

That's the front page of The Lewiston Tribune from a few weeks ago. The photo on top shows a guy in a black-and-blue flannel shirt decorating a store window for Christmas. Right below it is a surveillance photo of a guy in a black-and-blue flannel shirt stealing a woman's wallet from a convenience store.

Sure enough, it's Michael in both photos. Several readers noticed and called the cops, who busted him for the theft.
