Dumb Criminal of the Day
I think we've found our first TRULY idiotic criminals of 2007 right here.



--So, congratulations, 46-year-old Kurt Husfeldt, his 13-year-old son whose name wasn't released, and 20-year-old Steven Mangiapanella, all of Lindenhurst, New York (--on Long Island). . . because we're talkin' about YOU.



--Last week, the 13-year-old boy and Steven snuck into the Public Works department of Babylon, New York (--the next city west on Long Island), and stole 14 GPS devices. Their plan was to resell them and make a few grand.



--But. . . they forgot to TURN THEM OFF. . . so, as soon as the town figured out their GPS devices were missing, they fired up the GPS system on THEIR end. . . which is hooked up to those devices. . . and showed EXACTLY where they were.

--The cops busted into Kurt's house, where they found him with one of the GPS devices in his hands.



--He was charged with criminal possession of stolen property; his son and Steven were both charged with grand larceny.

Priceless-the modern version of dropping your wallet at the burglary or writing the hold-up note on the back of a check---idiocy is timeless-that's why we win!!

I love stories like those. Generally people with double digit IQs and a criminal mindset often end up in situations that are often hilarious such as this one. Another one that springs to mind is the guy that try to break into the liquor store with a cinder block, only the glass was plexiglass. The guy tossed the cinder block, it richocheted off and knocked him unconscious. LOL

For the uninitiated, try www.darwinawards.com ,it's also good for a few chuckles.

Last year, a not-rocket scientist here in the Bluff cut a hole in the metal roof of a car wash, and dropped down into the room that holds the cash machines, however, he cut himself going through the hole, straddled a big water pipe when he fell and then could not get back out and was there when the owner opened up. Dee-You-Em, DUMB.
