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

A Not So Sweet Idea

Bozo criminal for today comes from St. Albans, Vermont, where Christopher Pope had what many would think would be a dream job, working in a chocolate factory. Apparently, he didn’t think so and he came up with a bozo plan to get himself fired. He stole a cellphone from a co-worker and called in a bomb threat using a different worker’s name. He then tossed the cellphone into a toilet tank. Since he went to all this trouble to keep his identity a secret, we’re not exactly sure how he thought this would get him fired. Maybe he just had confidence in the detective work of the police force. When the cops did get around to questioning him, he quickly confessed and said he did it to get himself terminated. It worked. He probably didn’t figure he would also be charged with false public alarm, petit larceny and unlawful mischief.

    If I worked in a chocolate factory, I would try to get myself fired by swimming in the chocolate!
