Looks like a normal family picture right..

Fancy this. A Would-be purse snatcher thwarted by his own photobomb.
Definitely a picture paints a thousand words.
This happened in Wisconsin, USA when a family picture recorded the thief in action.
The thief was caught in the background rummaging through a family's luggages and bags, stealing items including cash, credit cards, iPad and car keys, belonging to the Myers family.
The Myers family recently visited Madison, Wisconsin, to attend a wedding.
There, the Myers clan posed for a picture outside of the Wisconsin State Capitol building at the same moment that one guy decided to walk off with one of the family's bags.
When the Myerses took a closer look at the photo their camera had snapped just moments earlier, they noticed that they had caught the robber in the act — a felonious photobomb.
The Myers wrote in an email :
"When I saw the guy with his hand in my bag, I ran back inside and found the Capitol Police. They were amazing. They immediately sent out a description of the thief using the photo I took. In a few minutes, one officer had found him still in the area. The thief had dumped some things from the bag in a nearby trash can — the flash for my camera, a small backpack of kids toys, a bag of cables, extra SD cards, my mini tripod — but still in my bag were my wallet with cash, credit cards, hotel keys, rental car keys, and my iPad."
The Police recovered everything and hauled the guy off to jail.
A picture really paints a thousand words...
