The good news is, this kid dressed as Batman caught a thief. The bad news is, this kid is the thief. Oops.

At the Colorado State Fair, a 16-year-old dressed in a Batman shirt and mask robbed the fair's VIP building of TVs, a laptop and an empty cash register. He, along with two others, were such inept criminals that they apparently locked themselves inside the building they were stealing from, forcing them to have to break out.

Shortly after, the local news reported the crime, and  they also included the likeness of the kid dressed as Batman. It wasn't long afterward that the kid, fearing the consequences of remaining in hiding, decided to turn himself in.

As of now, the police are looking to charge the underage criminal with burglary and criminal mischief. His two cohorts remain at large.
