Cue the 'Dragnet' music

After a Jack in the Box in northern California was robbed, assistant manager Jeanette Gallo filed for workers’ comp because of the stress she’d suffered. Under state regulations, it would’ve been a routine situation if Gallo hadn’t had one extraordinary circumstance: She’d helped to rob the place.

Apparently she was no master thief, and an even worse liar. The restaurant’s franchisees were tipped off by her early arrival on the morning of the heist. Their suspicions were confirmed by watching how she handled herself during the robbery, which was caught on a video monitor.

She was arrested first for grand theft, then for two felony counts of insurance fraud, to which she pleaded guilty.

Another criminal mastermind, cut short in the bloom of her career.
