Talk about terrible timing.

Two women were caught allegedly stealing $1,900 worth of electronics from a Bloomfield Township Target on the same day the store was packed with police for a Shop with a Cop event.  

"I couldn't believe it," Bloomfield Township Police Sgt. Dan Brown said. 

About 15 police officers from four departments — Sylvan Lake, Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake and Bloomfield Township — were at the Target at 2400 Telegraph Wednesday night, helping 22 disadvantaged children pick out Christmas presents for their families. 

Keiana Wilson, 40, of Burton and Dana Johnson, 18 of Flint were also there.

Brown said store loss prevention officers watched on cameras as the women loaded a cart with two Apple watches, two iPads and a Nintendo gaming system. At about 7:30 p.m., they walked past the registers without paying.

They never made it to the parking lot. 

"The loss prevention (officers) actually apprehended them, then they asked for police assistance," said Sylvan Lake Police Sgt. Michael Mondeau, who organized the Shop with a Cop event. "The police officers were only about 20 feet away when they tried to walk out of the store."

It's a shame "The Smoking Gun World's Dumbest" isn't being made anymore - this pair would be prime candidates!
