TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Andrew Mark Connor, 27, a British man who knocked over a can of paint during a robbery and left a trail of foot prints back to his house.
Connor broke into a thrift store, and while he was inside, he accidentally knocked over a can of white paint.
Apparently he didn’t realize it because he kept his shoes on all the way back to his place.
The cops simply followed them and arrested him for burglary.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Nildo Garcia, a Mexican police officer, who was suspended because of a topless selfie in her patrol car in which she had a semiautomatic weapon on her lap.
Garcia’s steamy photos ended up on Facebook and her bosses were able to spot her badge number on her right sleeve.
Garcia has been suspended for her inappropriate actions and may ultimately get fired.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Jennifer Michele Beale, 37, and Kevin Brown, 42, who were arrested after they tried to plant drugs in a woman’s truck in hopes of getting her arrested.
California police say the couple planted a BB gun, a 12-inch hunting knife, and methamphetamine in the bed of a truck belonging to a 40-year-old woman they knew.
The problem was that they put the meth in a sunglasses case, and the victim told police that the case belonged to one of them.
The officer investigated and the duo were arrested instead.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Kevin Gibson, a 58-year-old pot dealer in Miami, Florida, who learned if you have a very identifiable characteristic, like having only half of a beard, you might want to refrain from illegal activities when the police are around.
Gibson was arrested on the eve of “pot holiday” 4 / 20 for possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
What led police to him? The left half of his face is covered in thick white facial hair, full bushy sideburns, a mustache, and a long beard.
But the right half of his face is totally shaved; no sideburns, no mustache, no beard.
Gibson didn’t offer up any explanation for why he’s half shaved.
