This week on New Jersey's smart criminals, this robbery suspect ALMOST got away with it. Until he left his wallet at the scene of the crime.

Ahhh, almost had it.

Philly Voice says it all went down at Mavis Discount Tire in Fair Lawn early Thursday. The window at the back of the building was broke, and $300 was missing from the cash register.

Police were investigating the scene of the crime when they found a wallet that belonged to a former employee. Then a few hours later, officers received a call that the suspect and another driver arrived at the crime.


To retrieve the lost wallet!

While I'm happy police potentially caught the person responsible, you gotta laugh at the carelessness of this robber.
