Welcome back Super Sleuths!! This Friday we will announce the Super Sleuth Winners for February and March. Be sure to stop back to see if you are the best of the sleuths these past few months.
Every month or so we pick a story of less than brilliant criminals. These are the poor souls who should really pick a different profession. Today’s criminals are just such a pair that I want to scream, “Don’t quit your day job!”
Any self-respecting criminal knows that you need a way to hide your identity if you are going to commit a crime. There are many ways one can hide their identity. These two criminals came up with their own unique plan.
Two men in hooded sweatshirts showed up at a man’s house to rob him. The man was dating a former ex-girlfriend of one of the men and he wanted a bit of revenge with a monetary spin. They finished the job and took off in their getaway car.
The police stopped their car a few blocks away since it matched the description the caller gave in reference to the robbery. The two men were brought to the station for questioning and later booked for robbery.
Their unique disguise surprised law enforcement officials.
How did the men disguise themselves?
1. They covered the lower part of their face with socks they tied around their head.
2. They painted their faces like clowns and wore red noses.
3. They used ripped black garbage bags to cover their faces with holes for the eyes and nose.
4. They colored their faces with black permanent marker.
Friday we will return to share the answer and our winners. Lesson for today, DO NOT mix a brilliant criminal plan with alcohol!
