Positive I.D. (ADC 3)
Detective Chris Stewart of the Brunswick (Georgia) Police Department told one of America's Dumbest Criminals' field reporters about a robbery suspect he transported back to the scene of a crime for a positive identification:
"We had gotten a call informing us that a woman had had her purse stolen from a shopping complex," Stewart says. "A short time later, we saw a man who fit the description given to us by the victim. So we picked him up and took him back to the scene of the crime." Stewart explained to the suspect that they were going to take him back to the crime scene and that when they arrived he was to exit the vehicle and face the victim for a positive I.D. The man in custody heard this when the detective radioed ahead to the officer with the victim. Stewart said he had a man in custody who fit her description of the robber and they would be arriving shortly. When they arrived at the scene, the suspect did exactly as he had been told. He stepped from the car and looked at the victim. And before anyone could say anything, he blurted out, "Yeah, that's her . . . that's the woman I robbed."
