I dunno man, the year’s still pretty fresh

cell-phone.jpgSouth African police are laying claim to possibly having arrested the “dumbest criminal” of the year. As I say, it’s a bit early to start talking about the dumbest criminal of the year, particularly considering how quiet Florida has been lately. But this dude probably has a good claim to the title of Dumbest Criminal of January.

So this guy walks into a police station and reports that a gang held him up at gunpoint and snatched his mobile phone. A detective started talking with him and, wisely, asked him for his phone number. The detective then called the phone number, and the guy’s cell phone starts ringing. Because it was in his pocket. The 25-year-old jackass was promptly arrested for perjury.
