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

July 10, 2001

bozo criminal for today comes from the International File. From Chita, Japan comes the story of a bozo who went to a great deal of trouble to collect theft insurance on his car. Using a backhoe he dug a large hole on some farm land owned by his father. He then pushed the car in and covered it up, claiming it was stolen and hoping to collect about seven thousand dollars to pay off debts. There were two basic flaws in his plan. Number one, he didn’t completely cover the car, a piece of it was sticking out of the ground. Number two, he didn’t let his father in on the scheme. When pops noticed the freshly dug spot of land with a part of a car sticking out of it he called the cops.
