Do you ever wonder about some of the people who commit crimes? Lately, I’ve been reading about the stupid things criminals do to get caught and I can’t keep from laughing at some of their antics. But first the answer to last week’s Super Sleuth about the suspect the police were searching for.
It’s #2–He had attended an anti-crime event the day before and beaten several officers at a doughnut-eating contest. He claimed his prize and left before officers realized who he was.
Now for this week’s Super Sleuth. Below are four scenarios. Three are true and one is a fabrication of my mind. Which one is the fabrication?
- Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene and drove home. With the chain still attached to the machine. With their bumper still attached to the chain. With their vehicle’s license plate still attached to the bumper.
- A fraternity made a raid on a sorority house and stole certain unmentionables. Even though they were able to conceal their identities, they couldn’t leave well enough alone. The men, with their faces concealed, posted photos on Instagram holding their prizes. And in the background was a sign with the name of the fraternity and was all the police needed to round up the criminals.
- A man walked into a local police station, dropped a bag of cocaine on the counter, informed the desk sergeant that it was substandard cut, and asked that the person who sold it to him be arrested immediately.
- A man walked up to a cashier at a grocery store and demanded all the money in the register. When the cashier handed him the loot, he fled — leaving his wallet on the counter.
