Stupid Criminals

Faux Phones

More brilliant criminals here in Ohio in the state capital, Columbus, no less. Apparently some high tech geniuses used rocks to smash in the back door of a Verizon store and took all the display phones. The display phones are dummies, you know like the thieves. Real cell phones are locked in a vault at night due to a previous successful robbery. When they get caught they won't be able to hold their heads up in jail amongst the real criminals.

Genitalia Vandalism

Genitalia vandalism, the funniest phrase I have ever seen, is how they refer to someone going through an Ikea drawing penises on everything, in Denmark. Not the first definition I'd have thought of but it works. Also, no, it was not some kid who was bored while mom shopped. A 31 year old grown man went through an Ikea and drew 30 penises on various items in the store. Bet his Mama is proud.

One In The Hole

A Norwegian golf course has been the victim of a perverse kind of vandalism repeatedly since 2005. Someone is sneaking on the golf course at night and defecating in the golf holes. The groundskeeper claims the vandal is likely a man due to the size of the...droppings. Security lights were erected to catch the offender, only to be disabled by him. So, 10 years later, this nasty person is still using the course holes as his personal potty much to the dismay of the grounds staff.

Once upon a time, some crooks thought it would be a good idea to rob the grave of Abe Lincoln and hold the corpse for ransom.

For Sale: Counterfeit Money

If you're looking to sell the counterfeit money you've made, posting an ad on Craigslist is the wrong way to go about it. As Tony Jerome Torbert Jr. recently discovered when undercover agents responded to his ad offering "Legit Counterfeit $$." []

Locked in a closet

Earlier this week, John Arwood and Amber Campbell phoned police to report they were trapped in a closet at Daytona State College's Marine and Environmental Science Center. They had been there for 2 days and needed to get out. When the police arrived, the scene they found wasn't pretty. Piles of feces in the closet and drug paraphenalia. They also found the closet wasn't locked. In fact, it couldn't lock. The couple could have gotten out if they had simply pushed the door open. The pair have now been charged with trespassing.
