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

1 7, 1999

Bozo criminal for today comes from Baton Rouge, Louisiana where Leon Wilson’s store had been broken into several times. So, Leon decided to set a little trap for our bozo thieves. He borrowed his wife’s motion activated Christmas tree, the one that says, "Merry Christmas" and then begins singing "Jingle Bells" whenever anyone passes by. He placed that tree by the door of his shop and then took a seat, just out of sight with his trusty shotgun in hand. Sure enough, later that night, Leon was awakened by his Christmas tree burglar alarm to find two teenaged boys breaking into his store. Leon fired a couple of warning blasts from his shotgun and the boys fled. They were arrested by police a little later when they reported to the local hospital with buckshot in their behinds.
