…Michael Millhouse looks great in photos?

Lewiston Tribune

You just can’t make this stuff up!

On December 14, the Lewiston Tribune put a surveillance camera photo on their front page of a man in a black-and-blue checkered coat that had stolen the wallet of an unaware convenience-store customer.

Directly above that picture, the Lewiston Tribune put a photo of Michael Millhouse decorating a window with holiday spirit.

In a black-and-blue checkered coat!

Police quickly made the connection, and Michael was arrested on charges of theft.

Talk about good timing!
