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

November 09, 2000

Bozo criminal for today comes from Sonoma County, California where bozo Howard Jones had a foolproof plan for breaking out of jail. Or so he thought. Our bozo switched identities with another inmate who was scheduled to be released on bail. He had airport shuttle bus schedules and even a hotel pamphlet for a Chicago hotel. At about 3 A.M., the bail had been posted and our bozo began what he thought would be a short walk to freedom. It turned out to be a shorter walk than he expected. Our bozo hadn’t been quite as thorough on his identity switch with the other inmate as he should have been. A guard on duty checked his prison ID and noticed that the picture and the bozo weren’t the same person. He had forgotten to change the photos in the ID. He’s back in jail.
