TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Grady Carson, 58, who applied for a loan in Spartanburg, South Carolina, so he could buy meth.
Carson put up his car as collateral on a title loan, but while he was filling out the paperwork, he wouldn’t stop pacing around the office.
Employees got suspicious and called police.
Carson was handcuffed and a search of his pockets turned up “a glass container with an off-white, rock-like substance inside.”
Carson, cops noted, “stated it was cocaine, but he was not going to smoke it, because he did meth.”
He’s facing charges for possession of narcotics.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Mark Kenady, 56, who broke into an apartment in Texas and left a personalized note behind for his victim, which he signed.
Kenady was mad at the victim for not letting him borrow $2 so he ransacked the man’s apartment, taking cash and other valuables.
Before leaving, he wrote the victim a note and he actually signed his name, Mark Kenady.
The cops compared the signature to Kenady’s DMV records, it matched, and he was arrested for burglary.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Two teenagers in Maine, who broke into a bunch of cars and were found by police stuck together in a pair of handcuffs that they had stolen.
The cops were out searching for them, and found them behind a gas station conveniently handcuffed together.
Cops had already begun searching for two teens who had gone on a crime spree when they found the two, behind a gas station, handcuffed together.
Apparently, they stole the pair of handcuffs out of one car, started messing around with them, and accidentally cuffed themselves together.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Edenson Major, a 26-year-old mugger in Florida, who was arrested for a mugging because his car wouldn’t start.
Major mugged a 73-year-old man in a parking garage, taking his wallet and other valuables, but he had to take off on foot when his car wouldn’t start.
The victim showed police which car Major tried to start and they promptly tracked the license plate to his house, where he was arrested.
