Are you ready for our Wednesday Super Sleuth Challenge? Remember, this is the last week in the challenge this month. Next week I will announce the winner to become our next Super Sleuth Challenge of the Month. This month’s prize is:

Book Description:

“After a whirlwind romance, Taryn Young is preparing to board a plane at Houston International Airport, bound for a dream honeymoon, when a bomb decimates the terminal. Injured but still alive, she awakens to discover her husband is missing and they’re both considered prime suspects in the attack. Further, the FBI is convinced her husband isn’t who he appears to be.

Agent Grayson Hall’s number-one priority is to catch those responsible for the day’s act of terror. All evidence is pointing to Taryn and her new husband. But his instinct tells him her pleas of innocence are genuine. Is her naiveté just for show, or could she truly be another victim of a master scheme, possibly linked to the software she recently developed for her company?

With both their lives and reputations on the line, and the media outcry for justice increasing with each passing minute, Taryn and Grayson have no choice but to trust one another . . . and pray they can uncover the truth before they become two more casualties.” (Amazon Description)

Criminals aren’t always the brightest bulbs, as we’ve shown here on my blog before, at least not the ones who get caught. In fact, today’s culprit put revenge over brilliance.

A Kentucky man was arrested for shoplifting alcohol from a local convenience store. A short time later, he and his friends were discovered drinking it in a public place.

Note: This was not the first time that he had stolen beer from the same convenience store that day.

Even though this individual’s own choice to rob the same store multiple times in one day led to his arrest, of course he blamed the law enforcement official who arrested him.  The criminal decided to get even with the arresting officer.

Which of the following did the criminal do?

A. Use his one phone call to order pizza under the arresting officer’s name to be delivered to the precinct.

B. Steal the officer’s car once he was out on parole.

C. Key the entire length of the arresting officer’s squad car.

D. Have his buddies torch the officer’s mailbox.

E. Smash in the officer’s car windows with a baseball bat.

Guess the correct letter for your chance to win the Super Sleuth of the Month Award.

    Goodness, any of these are believable, but I’ll go with E.

  2. I’m going with A. Great dumb criminal thingy.

  3. I’m going with A because it’s what I’d do and also I haven’t had breakfast. So it appealed to me. 🙂

  4. bonnie navarrro says:

    None of the options are very smart however, I think this is someone who would do the obvious and get caught in the act. I think he keyed the officer’s car the instant they let him out of jail.

  5. dianekratz says:

    Only an idiot would use his one phone call at a police station, to seek revenge. Got to be A.

  6. I think A. He was probably thirsty.

  7. Angie Arndt says:

    Hmmm, I think I’ll choose A because I was a pizza delivery driver when I was in college. We’d call back before we left (this was before cell phones), but we’d still get a few that hadn’t ordered. That was fine with us, because we’d get to eat the leftovers!
