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

August 24, 1999

Bozo criminal for today comes from Nashville, Tennessee where bozo Jonathan Parker thought he had it all figured out. He really wanted the leather jacket at the expensive department store but there was no way he could afford it. So he thought he’d just shoplift it. Only problem, the jacket had one of those little electronic tags–the kind that set off an alarm if you walk out the door with them still on the clothing. So our bozo goes into a changing room and peels off the little tag, throws it on the floor and walks out wearing his jacket. As soon as he gets to the door, the alarm goes off. A security guard who had been keeping an eye on him anyway stops him and retrieves the jacket. So, why did the alarm go off? Remember the little tag the bozo peeled off and threw on the floor? He stepped on it and it stuck to his shoe.
