Photobombing has been done as long as photography has been around but ever since a tiny rodent decided he wanted to be a star, the term "photobomb" and the habit of jumping into someone else's photo has become a phenomenon of sorts. Now even the criminals are getting into the act, although not on purpose. The Myers family did what almost all of us have done at some point. Set the camera on timer and attempt to grab a quick family portrait in front of a landmark. Unfortunately, they left the camera bag with wallet, keys, id and more behind them on the Wisconsin capitol steps. Ten seconds later the photo was snapped and the bag was gone.
Mr. Myers frantically searched for the bag without luck until he realized he might have captured the thief on camera. After a quick flip through the images he found what he was looking for, the thief caught with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar. Capitol security moved quickly and captured the thief before he could make a getaway.
What I really want to know is, what on Earth possessed this thief to throw away the flash, memory cards, and mini-tripod that were in the case?
