True Funny Crime Stories

1. A man went into a drug store in Baltimore, pulled a gun, announced a robbery, and pulled a "Hefty-bag" face mask over his head. He then realized that he'd forgotten to cut eye holes in the mask. He was arrested by security men.

2. A Belgium news agency reported, last year, that a man suspected of robbing a jewellery store in Liege said he couldn't have done it because he was busy breaking into a school at the same time.

Police then arrested him for breaking into the school.

3. Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene and drove home
………… With the chain still attached to the machine
………… With their bumper still attached to the chain.
………… With their vehicle's license plate still attached to the bumper. You couldn't make it up!

4. When a man attempted to siphon petrol from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for.

Police arrived at the scene to find an ill man curled up next to a motor home trying to steal gasoline and plugged his hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake.

The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.

5. Investigating a purse snatching, detectives picked up a man who fit the thief's description and drove him back to the scene. He was told to exit the car and face the victim for an ID.

The suspect carefully eyed the victim, and shouted, 'Yeah, that's the woman I robbed.'

The truth can be funny and scary at the same time. Also enjoyed the Wedding jokes. Have a blessed weekend.

All I can say is "YOU CANNOT FIX STUPID" but it is kind of funny when it aids the police. Peace

I guess it's a good thing I never became a criminal - there are hardly ever witnesses to the stupid things I do!

That number 4 was funny.

Funny criminal stories.
I read that your daughter Becky has surgery on the 25th, and I pray for great successful results for her. The 25th is my birthday and I believe grand things will happen for Becky on this day.

Hi Patty ~~ I came to check out your blog from Merle's comment you left as I didn't recognize you there (most I knew or recognized).

And I wouldn't have commented here except that the botched siphoning reminded me of my botched attempt at siphoning.

It was 1955 in the evening and a group of us had gone to a small neighboring town. I took my car and realized that I probably didn't have enough gas to get back home. The several stations were closed by that time.

One of the fellows said that once he had cut a gas station ding-ding hose off and used that as a siphon hose.

Wouldn't you know it but the police came before we could get it cut. I told him our situation and that we were looking for an after hours phone number.

One of the police said not to worry, they were used to this happening and had a five gallon container of gas for me or whoever needed it, just for problems like mine.

I am sure now that this nice policeman kept me from having a jail record.
