Ok, I can only describe this as sweet irony. The thief who stole $40,000 worth of photography gear from News Corp photographer at Rio olympics was caught by the same photographer he stole from – Brett Costello.
It was not enough for the thief to steal Costello’s $40,000 gear set, and he wanted more. I am not sure if the next step is more bold or more stupid. The thief wore Costello’s media jacket, probably to get an easier pass through security.
That was a bad call as Costello identified him and called the cops while the journalist he was with kept track on the thief. And what do you know, he was headed for the the press box. Either to get a good view of the games, or more likely to snag another camera or two.
