A 29-year-old guy in Bautzen, Germany shoplifted about $6 worth of stuff from a grocery store on Friday.  A when he ran away, he left behind . . . his eight-year-old SON.

The police found the kid and said, quote, "the culprit was quickly identified."

Oh . . . and the guy also fell down as he was running away and hurt himself badly enough that he had to go to the hospital.
