A thief in Texas gets the Albert Einstein award for having the smarts to pull this crime off.

The would-be car thief was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly tried to steal an unmarked police car at a home in Fort Worth,Texas.

Unfortunately, the home belonged to a police detective, and to make matters worse,  the cop was in the vehicle, waiting for it to warm up on a cold morning.

One suspect opened the car door and entered the vehicle, finding the officer inside, who screamed that he was under arrest. The suspect then fled on foot and remains at large, police in Haltom City said.

A second suspect waiting in a vehicle nearby sped off with police in pursuit. The six-mile chase ended when the suspect crashed into a building and was arrested, police said.

He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries from the crash and is charged with attempted vehicular theft and evading arrest, police said.
