It is impressive what teens can accomplish when they put their minds to it; I mean as long as it does not involve waking them before 10 am on a summer's day.
Anyway, here is a crime fail in the news…
I have not featured a crime story from "The Gopher State" since discussing "Diaper Thieves" awhile back. Fortunately, this St. Paul felon delivers with an extra helping of humor:
And who says that we Americans import everything and rarely have anything worthy to export?SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn -- Police didn't have to work hard to catch a man who broke into a Minnesota house.First the burglar failed to log out of Facebook after checking his profile on the homeowner's computer. Then he agreed to meet up with homeowner James Wood in an effort to get back wet clothes he'd left behind…South St. Paul police said the burglar took credit cards, cash and a watch...Wood posted his phone number on the burglar's Facebook page, hoping someone would call. The burglar himself texted Wood and agreed to meet with the homeowner, thinking he could negotiate for his clothes.When Wood spotted the burglar, he recognized him from Facebook and called police...
This crime tale ran in newspapers from India to Great Britain.
Yes my friends, we Americans can still manufacture our own excellent stupid criminal stories--products that put smiles on faces and are otherwise enjoyed by news readers from around the globe.
