Somali pirate capo lured to Belgium with promises of fame, arrested instead.

Crooks are amazingly susceptible to appeals to their vanity.   Dude should have known better.

From the article:

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM — A man suspected of being a pirate kingpin thought he was going to work in the movies. Instead, he landed in jail.
In a sting operation worthy of Hollywood, Mohamed Abdi Hassan was lured from Somalia to Belgium with promises of work on a documentary about high-seas crime that would “mirror his life as a pirate,” federal prosecutor Johan Delmulle said Monday.
But rather than being behind the camera as an expert adviser, Abdi Hassan ended up behind bars, nabbed as he landed Saturday at Brussels airport.
