File this one in the Dumb Criminals Dept.:
A carjacker stole a BMW from its owner at gunpoint in Columbus, Ohio, and drove away.
The owner and his friends hatched a plan to send text messages to his phone, which was still in his car. They baited the carjacker by sending texts promising a rendezvous with hot chicks and drugs.
The carjacker fell for it and showed up a few hours later at a designated meeting spot, hoping to find the women and drugs. Instead, cops were waiting for him.
