Stupid Criminals: Robber is Busted After Using Uber as His Getaway Plan
In this edition of Stupid Criminals, we find a man who decides Uber is his best getaway plan.
According to WBAL-TV, 23-year-old Dashawn Cochran went to a convenience store in Parkville, Maryland last week, pulled a gun, and robbed the place.
Then, he went on Uber to find himself a getaway car.
His driver came in a silver Lexus and picked him up, without realizing Cochran had just robbed the store.
Police pulled them over not long after that and arrested Cochran, and eventually cleared the Uber driver when they realized he wasn't involved.
Better yet, there was another passenger in the car because Cochran had used UberPool, that's a service of Uber where you save money by agreeing to share a car with other random people, that guy was cleared too.
