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

7 14, 1998

The Bozo criminal for today just didn’t know when to quit. From Springfield, Illinois comes the story of Bozo Daniel Redding who was arrested and charged with conning grandmothers out of their money. He would comb thru phone books, looking for women with old fashioned first names. He would then call them, claiming to be their long lost grandson, begging them to send him money to fix his broken down car. He was turned in by one of the grannies and arrested. And as for the quitting while he was ahead part? He was slapped with another charge after using his one phone call from jail to contact a 93 year old woman to ask her to send him bail money.
