The suspect would call place orders to lure her victims, then rob them of their food and cash. The only problem with her brilliant plan? This idiot used her own address and phone number:
Police said that the 16-year-old girl called local Chinese restaurants on three occasions between Oct. 4 and Oct. 25, asking that food be dropped off on Ocean Avenue between Albemarle and Beverly roads.Caught! By your own stupidity. This news was published last week, but it says her accomplices were still at large.

But when the food came, her compatriots bum-rushed the delivery man, robbing them of their food and cash.
Detectives linked the thefts to the young girl after tracking down the phone numbers that were left with every order. Investigators soon learned that the 16-year-old lived in the building where two of the orders were made.
