JumboTron helps snare suspect

By Washington Post Editors

A man wanted for a killing in New York City was caught shortly after being spotted on the JumboTron at an NBA game, according to this report:

If only all murder suspects were as stupid as Earle Barranco -- a Brooklyn fugitive who waltzed past a JumboTron camera at an NBA game in the same gaudy bling he wore when he allegedly pulled the trigger.
As if that weren't bold enough, the dopey 24-year-old showed up at the same arena days later, where cops promptly nabbed him and replaced his bling with shiny steel handcuffs.
