The most stupid recorded crimes are in the current century and simply suggest criminals are not the smartest and cunning characters they are said to be. Some depict utter stupidity.
1. Alms with a Hummer
A 51-year-old Jonesville, Virginia man known as William Anderson went to the social services department to apply for welfare in a H2 Hummer. The local sheriff saw the oddity and perhaps the stupidity and checked the plates. It was a stolen vehicle. Anderson wanted help to keep the Hummer running, perhaps. It is very interesting just to think what was in the mind of the clerks who saw him make an entry, as well as fellow alms seekers.
2. Job Application
Demetrius Robinson from Athens in Georgia had hatched a plan to steal from a Gold Pantry shop at night and to wait for the clerk to be alone so that he can continue with his plan, he started filling a job application form, but unfortunately, he wrote all his names and the contact number of his uncle. Sure, he robbed the pantry but police found it easy to track his whereabouts. The job application went to naught.
3. Hanging Man
An English man from Dartford, England, 32 years old, known as John Pearce had guts to steal in stark daylight. Whiling climbing through the apartment’s window, a foot was caught and had him dangling, legs up. Pedestrians walking by saw everything and he was mocked thoroughly prior to the entry of authorities.
4. Billion Dollar Fool
A 21 year old from Dallas Texas, Charles R. Fuller decided to be the richest man around. He went beyond the simple basics of commonsense as he went to cash the best and heaviest check he has ever held: 360 Billion Dollars worth. On close scrutiny, the check was addressed to another person. He was arrested for forgery. Lucky, for him, there are no charges for stupidity.
5. P**n Blunder
You want to steal p*rn video? Play your cards right. In Colorado, Longmont, a 33-year-old male known as Andrew Libby wanted p*rn bad, hurried into a p**nographic movie store, and impersonated a cop, demanding porn copies. His cover was a detective with the age verification bureau and he was mandated to make sure all the stars in the Flicks were 18 years and over. His conspicuous Fabio hair did badly for him and no one bought his p**n tale.
