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

April 24, 2001

Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Joe Messina for sending in today’s report. From Boston, Massachusetts comes the story of bozo Hal Cowans who broke into a home and stole a couple of cameras and some jewelry. He then headed to the nearest pawn shop and hocked the items. The police were eventually able to track down the stolen goods and return them to the rightful owner. But the bozo’s identity remained a mystery until the owner decided to get the film in one of the cameras developed. On the roll were several pictures from his nephew’s Bar Mitzvah and a couple of photos of a man he didn’t recognize…but the police did. It seems our bozo let the pawn broker take a couple of shots of him to prove the camera worked and then forgot to remove the film. The next pictures he’ll have made will be mug shots.
