Dumb Criminals & yes these are real….
A man mailed half a pound of pot through an undisclosed shipping company but forgot to put the address on the package. Pursuant to the policy of that company, employees opened the package to see if the mailer had mistakenly sealed the label inside. When they discovered the pot, they called the police. The man had his real return address on the package.

A woman didn’t have to look far to figure out who likely broke into her home and took a camera from her purse. Police said the burglar left behind his probation and parole card. The woman was going through her purse after the burglary earlier this month to make sure nothing other the camera was taken. She found the man’s probation and parole card, which had a date and time stamp on it for his next appointment. During his trial he admitted that he didn’t even know how it got there.

Three men went into a store to rob it. There were several customers shopping at the time. While waiting for the customers to leave, one man picked up a cell phone, examined it, and took a picture of himself. Then, after the customers left the store, the three men proceeded to rob the store, leaving the phone with the picture on the counter. The police now have the picture of the dumb crook, and put it on TV for everyone to see.

Officers began to suspect that the man they pulled over was lying when he identified himself as Robert despite a tattoo with the name Cecil on the back of his neck. They arrested Cecil and charged him with false informing. He had identified himself as his brother Robert.

A man who called police to report a break-in. He had returned home and found that someone had broken a window, got cut on the glass, and crawled into the house. He told police the only thing missing was the quarter-pound of marijuana he was selling.  The police called him back to tell him they had recovered the bag of pot and then invited him to come to the Public Safety Building to identify it. The man identified the pot as his and then was arrested and booked into the county jail for investigation of possession of marijuana in a drug-free zone with intent to distribute.

An Orlando FL Deputy was in uniform. He was also sitting in his marked patrol car. So he was a bit surprised when a man approached Friday and allegedly offered to sell him some cocaine. The man walked up to Johnson’s car at a Mobil gas station and asked the Orange County deputy if he was “straight,” according to arrest records. When the deputy replied he was, the man responded “Do you know what that means? …. It means do you want to buy some cocaine.” When the deputy said “yes,” the man pulled out a plastic bag containing several pieces of flat white rock substances and asked for cash, records show. The deputy took the bag and arrested him after the contents tested positive for cocaine.

A man successfully broke into a bank’s basement through a street-level window, cutting himself up pretty badly in the process. He then realized that: (1) he could not get to the money from where he was, (2) he could not climb back out the window through which he had entered, and (3) he was bleeding pretty badly. So he located a phone and dialed “911” for help.

A man walked into a Circle-K convenience store, put a $20 bill on the counter and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled– leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer? Fifteen dollars.

Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene and drove home…. They left the chain still attached to the machine; their bumper still attached to the chain; and their vehicle’s license plate still attached to the bumper.

A man convicted of robbery worked out a deal to pay $9600 in damages rather than serve a prison sentence. For payment, he provided the court a check — a *forged* check. He got 10 years.

A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn’t control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words: “Give me all your money or I’ll shoot”, the man shouted, “that’s not what I said!”.

Writte 2008:  P.S. – I wrote this one in 2006 & reposted it so as to move it over here to my new blog. After I posted and was proofing, I looked closer at picture #2 – Check out those gas prices!!!!!

Just thought everyone would enjoy a smile once in awhile ~ courtesy of a few idiots!
