Should have thought of that before you decided to break into that house

Yet another page in the constantly growing Stupid Parent Tricks file…

This time, a couple in West Virginia decided to leave their three children alone in the middle of the night while they went a few blocks down the street and stole a neighbor’s water heater and copper pipes. According to the couple, they were planning to sell the stolen property for scrap. So now mom and pop are facing two counts of burglary and three of child endangerment. Does not having taken your children along on your crime spree offset having left them alone? Hmm.

According to news reports, getting locked up has made the mom, Amanda Ogden, “rethink her decisionmaking.” Gee, ya think?

Whatcha think?
