Don’t you just love how brilliant some criminals can be? Today we are going to hear of one such criminal who should definitely lay off of the sauce that he claims cause him to steal more than $4,000 worth of loot.

First, let me introduce the prize for the month of September. The winner will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card and a new book. I’m excited to read this new release by Robin Caroll.

As a white water rafting guide, Katie Gallagher must battle the forces of nature on a daily basis. When sabotage becomes apparent on a weekend rafting trip, Katie must determine who she can trust—and who has their own agenda.

Hunter Malone has a mission on a business adventure trip on the Gauley River, a mission that didn’t include a spunky guide who could handle the class-five rapids better than he’d ever imagined. But can she handle the truth?

Now Back to our Wednesday Super Sleuth Challenge- Less Than Brilliant Criminals. They lifted $4,000 worth of stuff. Here is how things went horribly wrong.

The man’s first mistake was inviting a buddy over and getting drunk. Apparently his friend had no more sense than he did while inebriated.

After a few two many, the stellar pair decided to try their hand at burglary. It didn’t take long for them to be caught red handed.

Their sad excuse? They had too much to drink and didn’t mean it.

Wednesday’s Super Sleuth Challenge- Less Than Brilliant has a challenge for you.

How were the burglars caught by the Police?

A. The burglars dropped their wallet at the scene.

B. The burglars robbed a deep fryer and left a trail of grease to their back door.

C. The burglars posted pictures with their new stash on Facebook.

D. The burglars used the grill they stole at the neighborhood block party where the neighbor recognized their grill.

 To be entered in the challenge, write the answer to the one you think is correct in the comments below.

    I think it’s A. People do really stupid things when they drink alcohol.

    It’s fun to drop in for a sleuth party. I haven’t had a chance lately, but this week I’m on vacation. I hope you’re doing well, Michelle.
