Little Kid Foils Thief

Today's "Good Stuff"- Check out the above surveillance video of 8-year-old Omari Freeman from a convenience store in North Carolina.

In the upper corner of the screen, there's a man up to no good. Watch as he pockets two beers from the fridge. He think's he's gotten away with his little "five finger discount." But nope! Little Omari confronts the man. He follows him as the guy leaves the store and tells the cashier. Eventually the would-be thief is forced to come back into the store, return the beers and fess up.

For his efforts, Omari was honored by the police chief!
