What were they thinking? Two guys were caught trying to steal a metal telephone pole after Hurricane Irma hit Florida.

Someone saw the men placing the pole on top of their car and that's when police were notified of the attempted theft.

The two men say that they were going to try and sell the pole to a scrap yard. Did they not think the people there would recognize this type pole?

Well, they never made it to the scrap yard and they were arrested for grand theft. Poor fools.

Imagine seeing this on Ambassador Caffery while someone tried to reach Cameron St. on "scrap day." Nope.
