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

June 5, 2009

Bozo criminal for today comes from Lincoln, Nebraska, where enterprising bozo Mary Mitchell was hired by the local newspaper as an ad salesperson. She was paid a salary, but would earn more based on the size of the paper, and the more ads, the bigger the paper. She started selling ads, lots of ads, about $12,000 worth. The paper was getting bigger and everything was fine until it came time to send out bills for the advertising. Almost none of the businesses had ever heard of our bozo or the ads. She had simply placed fake ads to boost her own salary. Oops…she’s busted!
