The next time you decide to rob a drug store … try not to leave behind a book-bag with your birth certificate in it. ( That may just get you caught!)

A Brodheadsville man accused of robbing a local pharmacy of painkillers made the job easier for police by leaving behind his birth certificate.

Stroud Area Regional Police say Keith A. Rebori, 23, robbed the East Stroudsburg CVS of painkillers on Thanksgiving Day.

A man entered the CVS and handed the pharmacist a bag and threatening note demanding all of the Oxycodone, Oxycontin and Xanax, police said. The pharmacist gave him 798 Oxycodone tablets, after which the man left.

Police later searched the area, finding a hooded sweatshirt, a backpack and the note used in the robbery. They also reviewed the surveillance video, which showed a man in the pharmacy earlier that day, wearing the same hooded sweatshirt and carrying the same backpack, police said.

Police said the backpack contained Rebori’s birth certificate. He was arrested, placed in Monroe County Correctional Facility in lieu of $25,000 bail and will appear in district court at a future date.


There’s one thing to commit crimes … but to be ignorant in the process is a big no-no!

That is why 23-year-old Keith Rebori gets the honor of being the “Doofus of the Day!”
