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

September 2, 2008

Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Don Reese for sending in today’s report. From Tampa, Florida, comes the story of bozo Lorenzo Cook who broke into a vehicle at the mall and grabbed a $500 digital camera before being spotted by the car’s owner. Our bozo then took off, leaving behind a shoe and the screwdriver he used to break into the vehicle, but his biggest problem was his choice of a hiding place. He sought refuge in a portable toilet on a nearby construction site. Unfortunately, the car’s owner and a friend were hot on his heels and they simply tipped over the port-a-potty, effectively locking him inside until the police arrived. After a quick hose down, he was placed under arrest.

(Best of Bozo) Bozo criminals for today come from the International File in Bucharest, Romania, where two bozo burglars thought they were doing the right thing when they put socks on their hands to avoid leaving behind fingerprints when they robbed a cellular phone store. This could possibly have been a good idea if they had used clean socks. Instead, they took their old, smelly socks off their feet and put them on their hands. A police dog was able to track them down from the smell of those socks and they were placed under arrest less than two hours later.
