There’s nothing like making your getaway car more CONSPICUOUS and SLOWER to really guarantee you won’t get away with a crime.

There’s a 34-year-old guy named Joseph Johnson from Milwaukie, Oregon.  And on Tuesday, he robbed an Ace Hardware store at gunpoint, then fled in his Mazda SUV.

But he wasn’t hard to spot, and he couldn’t have been driving particularly fast . . . because he had a COUCH strapped to the roof of his car.

The cops easily tracked him down and arrested him.

It turned out the Mazda was stolen, but there’s no word on whether the couch was there when he stole the car or not.

He’s facing several charges, including robbery, eluding, and more.
