Armed Robbers Steal Bike, Ignore GoPro, Head Straight to Jail

Daylight robbery? Daylight stupidity, more like.

A mountain biker was finishing up the last few kilometers of his ride in Cape Town, South Africa, when a trio of armed bandits forced him to give up his bike, cellphone, car keys and Oakley sunglasses. One valuable item, however, appears not to have registered with the main perpetrator. Not only is the head-mounted GoPro video camera worth a few hundred dollars, it also captured the robbery in high definition and lead to the arrest of all involved.

In one of the area's clearest open-and-shut cases, all three men were charged with robbery. No doubt the words "Go" and "Pro" will be haunting them throughout their stay in the iron bar hotel.
