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

December 1, 2003

Bozo criminal for today comes from Santa Rosa, California where perhaps bozo Gabriel Ortega was thinking about Christmas when he spotted a cute teddy bear. And the more he thought about it the more he just had to have that bear. And even the seven foot high glass barrier couldn’t keep our bozo away. He scaled it with ease and snatched the $10 bear and stuffed it into his pocket. Now this whole incident would have gone down as a simple shoplifting except for one thing. The bear was one of several that were used as fund raisers for local youth activities. Activities sponsored by the police department. And the display case that he stole the bear from was inside the police station. He’s under arrest.
