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

He Gave Out Six Tickets and Got Ten Friend Requests

Our bozos for today from Sagadahoc County, Maine, were victims of one of the more unusual sting operations we’ve ever encountered. The sheriff’s office dispatched an officer, dressed in a baseball cap, t-shirt and sneakers to a busy intersection, with the police cruiser parked nearby. The cop then stood at the corner, carrying a sign, looking for all intents and purposes like a typical panhandler. Except for what was written on the sign, “Hello. I’m a Deputy. If you’re TEXTING and driving you are about to get a ticket.” The idea being that if the drivers were so busy texting and driving they’d never bother to read his sign. And they were right. Quite a few bozos were caught, with around a dozen citations being written.
