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

5 16, 1997

The Bozo Criminal for today comes from the International File. From Jaguapita, Brazil comes Bozo Carlos Gomes who was arrested for trying to steal a bank safe. The bozo decided the best way to open the save would be to blow it open. Since he had no dynamite, he tried a different, bozo approach. He poured gasoline over the safe and lit it. Some of the gasoline seeped inside the safe, and when the bozo stuck a match to it, the safe exploded, blowing the bozo across the room. Police, drawn by the explosion, caught the bozo as he was running away. The bozo denied he was trying to blow open the safe, instead saying the explosion happened while he was in the bank’s kitchen frying up a steak.
