Stupidest Criminal...

Nothing is funnier than a stupid criminal, right?


There was a case where a burglar fell asleep on the bed, in the house,

with the couple whose house he was robbing. It sounds crazy, but it's a

true story. The folks at The Smoking Gun are having a funny award for

this year's "Stupidest Criminal", so I thought to start a thread here

to see if there were any good stories out there that we can submit to

their editors (long-shot but hey, you never know!!) In case you want to

check it out the show (it's called The Smoking Gun Year End Special),

it's going to air this Thursday night, I believe at 10pm. These guys

can be pretty hilarious so it's worth taping in case you aren't going

to be home.

A BURGLAR was caught having a bath after breaking into an empty home he had already raided a few months before.


Gary Rickard, 33, made himself feel at home, a court heard yesterday .


He helped himself to food and drinks and put on some music before jumping into the bath.


But the owner had decided to check on the property, heard Rickard's footsteps and called police.


Magistrates in Exeter, Devon, sent Rickard to the city's Crown Court for sentencing and remanded him in custody.

He got 8 months :)
