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

July 27, 2000

Thanks to Bozo News Hawk John Shelton of our Japan Bureau for sending in today’s story. From Osaka, Japan comes the story of a bozo who sent several anonymous letters to branches of a large Japanese pharmaceutical firm threatening serious consequences if his ransom demands were not met. Officials of the firm were justifiably concerned until the bozo tripped up. A clerk at a convenience store near the firm’s headquarters found one of the bozo’s original ransom letters. In the copy machine where he had run off several copies. The bozo was quickly identified from the store’s video camera and arrested.
