    Not Ready for Prime Time: William Jarrett, 38, was charged in Hempstead Village, N.Y., in November with swiping a necklace from a 32-year-old pregnant woman and running off. Despite her condition, the woman chased him, screaming, for six blocks and caught up with him just as a police officer was arriving on the scene. [Newsday, 11-18-08]
    :lmao: How out of shape do you have to be for a six months pregnant woman to be able to chase you down?! :confused::eek::biggrin1:

    In November, a judge in Dublin, Ga., sentenced Rico Todriquez Wright, 25, to at least 20 years in prison for the 2006 shooting of Chad Blue, who had told police initially that he didn't know who had shot him. Blue later heard a thug-life song on CD, "Hitting Licks for a Living," in which rap singer Wright brags, "Chad Blue knows how I shoot" and realized Wright was the one who shot him that night. [Atlanta Journal-Constitution-AP, 11-19-08
    Note to self: Do not record a song about your criminal activities.

    :tongue:
    Embarrassing: A 49-year-old Leavenworth, Kan., man was hospitalized in November after (according to police) using a front-end loader to pluck an ATM from the Frontier Credit Union. He was hurt when he drove to the edge of a 50-foot embankment and tried to drop the ATM, imagining that the fall would break it open, but instead, he, the loader, and the ATM all crashed to the bottom. [Kansas City Star, 11-24-08]

    British Muslim convert Nicky Reilly, 22, pleaded guilty in October in Exeter, England, to attempted terrorism for detonating a homemade nail bomb in the Giraffe restaurant. The plan failed when Reilly triggered the bomb in the men's room, intending to take it into the dining area, but then could not unlock the men's room door to get out. (His lawyer called him perhaps the "least cunning" person ever to be charged with terrorism in Britain.) [Reuters, 11-22-08]

    I love "least competent criminals" stories! There was one a long time ago in the area around where I grew up. This woman reported her checkbook stolen, then bought a bunch of stuff with the supposedly "stolen" checks - including lawn bunnies, that she put on her lawn for decoration - and that's how she was caught. :biggrin1:
