Syracuse Teens Caught After Dine And Dash Because They Locked Their Keys In The Car



(CNY) SYLVAN BEACH -- Four young adults from the Syracuse area were charged after "dining and dashing" and finding themselves locked out of their car. Police say that after a 17-year-old girl from DeWitt locked her keys in her car, she went in to the State Police station in Sylvan Beach to ask for help unlocking her car. Just moments later, police say they were dispatched to Cinderella's Restaurant on Main Street where an employee reported that two men and two women had eaten and fled without paying. Police say the employee followed the suspects to their car and reported that they were locked out of the vehicle. When police arrived at the scene, they discovered the girl who had just requested help standing by her car along with another woman and two men, all from Syracuse and between the ages of 17 and 20. They were charged with theft of services and issued appearance tickets.

On the Litmus Test of "epic fails" it just doesn't get much worse than this. First off dining and dashing is one of the biggest scum bag moves you can pull. The waiter/waitress ends up eating that check out of their own pockets and they get no tip. So right off the bat I know these kids are pieces of shit. So they dip out on the check, head to their getaway car only to find that they locked the keys inside. An unfortunate turn of events, but for the sake of not getting arrested you absolutely have to chalk that up as a loss and book it on foot, returning to the car at a later, safer time. But nope, these geniuses decide to head down to the police station for help, and while they're there, the restaurant calls in to file a report about four teens that just skipped on their bill. So the cops follow them back to the car, the owners come outside and just like that the kids are caught red handed. Kinda reminds of a Law and Order episode, only instead of the cops having to do their jobs, the morons fall right in their laps. Vintage upstate New York right here. No class.

***UPDATE***

My apologies to Soren Bowie for portraying him as a teenage thief!

  1. Hi, I saw your site linked from an article I read. It wasn't about locksmiths but about a picture you have on your site of a man looking in the car window at his keys in the ignition. It turns out that that man in the picture never set the picture as public license but he isn't mad. Funny story, he offered a better picture free for use at:

    2. Soren Bowie is the greatest. You could have at least asked before you stole his face to try to drive people to your blog (because you know that's the only reason people visit).

      Dumbass.

    3. hehehe... The only reason people visit is to see a stolen image in an article about failed theft. The author said it best: "On the Litmus Test of "epic fails" it just doesn't get much worse than this."

      Probably a little difficult to monetize that, but you might get a new blog post out if it!

  3. If you change your car image to Soren's new sensuous, impossibly handsome picture your site traffic will increase tenfold. Fact.

  7. You're not the legal license holder to that picture, neither is whatever site you stole it from. Please change it.

    And don't worry about changing the pic, Bowie himself says he doesn't actually care :)

  17. Fail. That's not a teen!

  18. This is hilarious! Cracked!

  19. Who's the real assholes: the teens who get caught after a dine and dash, or the guy who steals a photo to write an article about theft?

  25. CRACKED!

    I'm just doing this to screw with the search engine algorithms.

    ReplyDelete
  26. YOU GOT CRACKED!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Actually "one of the biggest scum bag moves you can pull" is using a photo that you don't have any rights to without even crediting the source. Blog fail.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow, Not only is it ironic, but the site's author looks like a huge tool, now. Thanks, Dan Chiavetta!

  30. Fail. That's not a girl... CRACKED!

  31. Cracked as well. Although, I don't know how the persons who commented before I are commenting an hour and a half in the future... Time travel O.o

  32. As interesting as your story fails to be, I would suggest using a more appealing photo for the article, to increase page views, and your own arousal. Simply make your way over to cracked, take a look at the articles written by Soren Bowie(The man whos image you used without consent, then tagged as "#asshole", and "#dumbass".) and switch to the newer more appealing photo.

    ReplyDelete
  33. All about the Cracked... and the fapworthy Soren Bowie, who may be an #asshole at times but is surely not a #dumbass. Though I have to say, the dine and dash maneuver is far more of an asshole move than stealing a pic that has been used hundreds of times.

  34. Cracked.

    Maybe an ad there would help your business...

    ReplyDelete
  35. For those wondering, here is the Cracked.com link: http://www.cracked.com/blog/how-google-image-search-made-me-world-famous-moron/

  36. first off i think this sites owner is foxy, and it's not that big of a deal because obviously soren isnt' too mad about it.. anyway he's trying to make the #dumbass #assholes look like dinguses and that wouldn't be achieved by putting Soren's new and much more handsome pic up. It wouldn't fit with the story anymore

    ReplyDelete
  37. For shame making him look like a criminal...

    ReplyDelete
  38. not cool you guys, change the photo

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cracked.com readers anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  40. OHAI I HERD U LEIK STEALING PICTURES

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm another local who got to this page from Cracked. I've eaten at Cinderella's, and I know where the police station these kids went to is (it's hard to miss). It probably made a nice change for the cops from dealing with drunks. Actually Sylvan Beach is a pretty nice place to go in the summer, get drunk, and wander around town (on foot). It's got the amusement park, the beaches, the car shows. If you're around here visiting or whatever, you should do it.

  44. I find this to be extremely amusing.

    Nice new pic, by the way.

    (Of course, I came from Cracked...maybe a little late?)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Also from Cracked. Seriously, did anyone read this article prior to Soren promoting it?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi. I'm just here to see Soren's face ;)
