CHILI, New York — He obviously didn’t think this one through.
An idiot crook out on parole allegedly robbed a Subway sandwich shop in Upstate New York while wearing a court-ordered electronic tracking device that ended up playing him at the scene of the crime.
Adam J. Hettig, 32, who has been on parole since March on a separate burglary conviction, allegedly walked into the Subway shop in Chili, New York, and pulled a knife.
Cops say Hettig then held the blade to a clerk’s throat.
“When I came out he was pushing up against the door, he pushed it open, and then he went around my back around the table, and he had put a knife to my throat,” the employee told WHAM-TV.
“He got impatient, I don’t know what he thought I was doing, but he got impatient and that’s when he choked me … He had the knife in the right hand and choked me with his left (hand),” he said.
When cops tried to determine who the culprit was, that quickly discovered that data from Hettig’s ankle monitor placed him at the Subway at the time of the crime.
