(Newser) – A tough-to-beat entry in the criminal genius files: Police in Tuscaloosa say a 20-year-old man robbed a pizza delivery driver after phoning in the order from his own address, reports The driver says he showed up at the home, knocked, and got immediately surrounded by armed men who stole his money and pizzas. Police canvassed the neighborhood armed with descriptions, and people kept pointing them back to the original house. Inside they found 20-year-old Michael Antonio Long, the stolen pizzas, and even the bag they came in. More arrests are expected to follow.

“We don't typically see a suspect call a delivery driver to their actual address to commit a robbery,” an officer tells the Tuscaloosa Times. (Read more dumb criminals stories.)
