Dave Moreland's Bozo Criminal of the Day - The world famous daily report on dumb crimes

February 1, 2002

Bozo criminal for today comes from the International File in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Bozo Charles Franklin thought he had the perfect plan. He would make a fake 911 call and while the cops were tied up checking out the call he would rob a convenience store. He made the call and reported a shooting at the corner of Main Street and Cathedral Avenue. The police checked it out and, after finding nothing there, called the dispatcher who was able to trace where the call had been made from. A pay phone, right across the street from the 7-11 our bozo was going to rob. Cops went by to check out the phone and caught our bozo in the act.
