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

July 23, 2010

Bozo criminal for today comes from Penryn, California where our bozo was living his lifelong dream…unfortunately that’s what got him arrested. The Valencia Club went out of business in June. A couple of weeks later bozo Travis Karl, a homeless guy, broke into the shuttered bar and started cleaning the place up. He bought a six-pack of beer and an "Open" sign at a convenience store and started selling beer to customers who strolled in. Business was good and he used the money from his proceeds to buy more alcohol, continuing to build up the business until he had up to 30 customers a day and a dozen or so bottles of hard liquor and several cases of beer. Things started to go downhill when the local paper did a story on the re-opening of the bar, complete with a picture and a quote from out bozo saying it was a "dream come true" to run the bar. A police officer recognized our bozo and went to the club to investigate. He’s been charged with burglary and selling alcohol without a license.
