Generally, it is an accepted fact that if someone was planning to commit a crime, he will have planned it well and only then he will try to execute the plan. However, this is not always true as the following ten criminal acts will prove:
This article is a continuation of the first article on Top 10 dumbest criminals.
1. Hickory North Carolina:
Donny Guy robbed two cash registers from a restaurant and vanished. Not for too long though. The cops only had to follow the trail of the white register tape all the way to his home, where he was trying to break open the registers!
2. Pennsylvania USA:
Allen Koch walked up to the Citizens and Northern Bank at 12.01pm wearing a ski mask and gloves and holding a gun. Unfortunately the bank was closed and he was unable to enter it. His license plate was noted by the bank employees and he was arrested on the charges of attempted robbery.
3. Manizales, Colombia:
This thief chose the wrong house to rob! It was the home of Christian Garces, a Pan-American karate champion and her fellow karate instructors and trainees. They caught him and beat him up, and hopefully scared him for life.
4. Windsor, Ontario:
Daniel Glen did not want to rob a store which did not have enough money to make it worthwhile. Hence he called up the sales clerk to find out how much money there was in the cash register. When he walked in to rob the cash register, the police were ready and waiting for him.
5. Wolverhampton, England:
Clive Halford was an experienced criminal, but his greed did him in. He loaded his stolen truck with 18 pallets of stolen nickel and copper. But the truck could not take the load and the suspension broke. Obviously he had not learnt his lesson from an earlier theft where his car’s suspension had broken down due to the load of stolen goods.
