HAZLET, NJ - A homeowner called police about a suspicious package that was delivered to his address. He hadn't ordered anything, and he didn't recognize the name on the package. So, what was inside? 50 pounds of marijuana... with a street value of over $300,000! The package had the name of the crook on the box, but the sender had put the wrong address on it! Whoops! Now the police are tracking down the sender as well.
COLUMBIA, TN - Hayden Vandiver was waiting for the right time to get back at his former boss, Michael Sloan, owner of a Columbia Asphalt Company. He broke into Sloan's business and stole his prize possession and "baby"... a 2012 Dodge 2500 truck. Hayden drove the truck over a mile into a creek and left it there! He didn't care; he planned to get caught all along. Why? He wanted to get away from his wife. Hayden was able to get the two things he had longed for. I've never seen a happier dumb crook!
GLADSTONE, OR - Roshawn Garrett, 23, had already had a long criminal history when he stole a car and eluded police. Not being able to track him down, the police relied on Nero... the K-9 hero! It didn't take long before Nero found Garrett hiding in some bushes in the massive park area. The words on Garrett's shirt confirmed it all... "WARNING: I DO DUMB THINGS!"
CANTON, OH - James Crossen, 31, was wanted as the main suspect in a robbery earlier in the day. Sheriff's deputies spotted Crossen's car at a house and went to the door. Crossen thought about giving up, but then changed his mind. He took off inside the house. The authorities surrounded the house, but took some time locating him. Eventually, they found him in the basement... stuffed in the clothes dryer! You have to admire a crook who wants to come clean and get dried out!
BRENT, FL - Joshua Lynam, 24, was just having some fun with his newly installed flashing lights. The car in front of him pulled over to let him pass. But Lynam pulled behind the stopped vehicle and started to question the driver. Lynam had no idea that it was an unmarked police car. It didn't take long for the plain-clothed officer to figure out that uniform-dressed Lynam was a fake. Now the fake cop is in jail!
