And the "duh" award goes to...

So let me get this straight: Group A provides its address to Couple B so Couple B can come by (with cash?) to purchase jewelry from Group A. Group A robs Couple B. Couple B provides Group A's address to the police. And...drum roll...police find Couple B's stolen property at the address. Isn't there an award of some sort for criminals who demonstrate a decided lack of forethought?

From KCAL News:

"Police are searching for a man suspected of robbing two Perris residents at gunpoint in Pomona Sunday afternoon authorities said.

"The 44-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman were robbed in the 1200 block of West Mission Boulevard about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, said Pomona police Lt. Paul Hitt.

"The pair went to the location to buy jewelry from a potential seller, Hitt said.

"The victims gave police a description of the suspects and the address of an apartment building in the 1500 block of West Mission Boulevard.

"When officers arrived at the location, they found two men and a woman matching the description of the robbers and took Ronald Chavez, 41, Pedro Reyes, 33, and Omara Bautista, 29 into custody, Hitt said.

"During a search of the location, police found the victims' stolen property, Hitt said.

"A fourth suspect, described as an older man, was still at large, Hitt said
early Monday.

"Anyone with information about the robbers call Pomona police at (909) 620-2156."
