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

November 03, 1999

Bozo criminal for today comes from Knoxville, Tennessee where bozo Ronald Shaw called up a cab and asked to be taken to a nearby bank with plans of robbing it, but changed his mind once there and asked to be taken to another. He went inside the bank, but came back out telling the cabbie the line was too long and asked to be taken to yet another bank and then to a fourth. On the way to the fourth, our bozo spotted another bank and asked our now quite suspicious cabbie to stop there. Our bozo emerged from the bank with a small package and a big smile on his face. He asked the cabbie to take him to a nearby Kentucky Fried Chicken. On the way there, the red dye pack in the money exploded, filling the back of the cab with smoke. By this time, the cabbie had had enough and stopped at the cab company’s office, which was only a couple of blocks away, and went inside to get help. Our dye covered bozo followed the cabbie into the office and offered to pay his fare with the red cash. He was unable to do so, however, as the cops arrived and hauled him off to jail.
