Stupid Criminals–How did He get Caught II…

The answer to last week’s Stupid Criminal — How did he get caught was Answer 2. He added a former Justice Department official as a Facebook friend and then bragged about what he’d done from Cancun.

It doesn’t pay to brag about your illegal activities on Facebook!

For this week, I have three stupid criminals for you to catch.

Here’s the first one:

Police arrested a 22-year-old man at an airport hotel. He was arrested because:

  1. When he asked for change for a twenty dollar bill and the clerk opened the drawer, he pulled a gun and demanded the money. Grabbing a handful of bills he fled, leaving the $20. The police caught him when he returned for the $20.
  2. He tried to pass two counterfeit $16 bills.
  3. He was intoxicated and tried to rob the hotel. When the clerk refused, he threatened to call the police. They still refused and he called the police–and was arrested.

Police arrested a would-be robber after he tried to rob a store in a mall. Which of the following is the correct reason for his arrest:


  1. He dropped his driver’s license as he ran out of the store.
  2. He grabbed a shopping bag and pretended to be shopping, forgetting that he was still wearing the pantyhose.
  3. He robbed a mall near his apartment that he frequented and the clerk recognized him.

And one last one:

A man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a city street. He was caught because:

  1. He was unconscious because the fumes had overcome him.
  2. The fumes had made him high, and he started singing, waking the owner who called the police.
  3. The man had accidently plugged his hose into the motor home’s sewage tank and made himself sick.

Okay, make your guesses and everyone who leaves a comment will be entered into a contest for…A choice between:

  1. A digital copy of Matthew’s Choice
  2. A digital copy of A Heartwarming Christmas and a digital copy of our cookbook/craft book
  3. A print copy of A Christmas Campaign (US addresses only; all other digital)

    I love these. I’m guessing for the first scenario it’s #1 and for both of the others it’s #3. I wouldn’t mind a book FILLED with these; I’ll bet it would sell well. Thanks!

  2. That’s a thought, Delores! It’s much fun discovering these cases.

    Okay, P.T…..Here are my guesses:
    2 for the first one (the counterfeit money,) 2 for the second one (pantyhose robber,) and 3 for the last one (the sewage robber.)

    Thank you all for taking the time to look these up and making this enjoyable! It’s so much fun, “sleuthing” around and trying to dig up the answers. 🙂

  6. Okay, Joanie! So glad you enjoyed sleuthing around.
