GRAFTON - Thieves who have targeted Target stores in southeast Wisconsin make the book of dumb criminals. Police say thanks to their decision to make a slow getaway after their latest strike in Grafton, they were able to catch them - and it was all caught on video.

Grafton Police Captain Joseph Gabrish explains, "On the way out, the video says it all. Here they are taking the duct tape off the car, and not even being aware of their surroundings, just they wanna get in here, steal the stuff, get back on the freeway and go to wherever they're gonna go to get their drugs."

The group is suspected of stealing about $4,000 in merchandise from the Grafton store on four separate trips, and also could be connected to thefts at Target stores in Menomonee Falls, West Allis, and Milwaukee.
