Dumb crook news

I’ve mentioned it before, but every time I read a story like this one, I’m reminded of a cow-orker who told me that most criminals aren’t that smart. Looks like again he is proven right.

A Rockford couple who called police to investigate a burglary at their home ended up being arrested on drug charges.

According to the Metro Narcotics Unit, officers investigating a burglary in the 5000 block of Vineyard Lane on Wednesday found more than 100 marijuana plants in the basement.

How? I can’t even conceive of being so stupid as to call that one in, and I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my time. (via Blog of Stupidity)
