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

August 13, 2001

From the International File in Blandford Camp, England comes the story of bozo Catherine Mitchell who worked at an army base pub and wanted an afternoon off. And since she didn’t have any time off coming to her she hatched the ultimate bozo vacation plan. She planted a cardboard box wrapped in duct tape underneath a table at the bar and then alerted a soldier to the suspcious package. He called the authorities and that’s when things got a little out of hand. Not only was the pub shut down, but approximately 1000 people from nearby homes and businesses were evacuated and a bomb disposal unit was called in. All because our bozo didn’t want to work that afternoon. She won’t have any afternoons off for a while. The judge sentenced her to 160 hours of community service.
