Let's start with some bungled crime for the week. It wasn't a great caper on the part of the bandits but it sure makes for some great headlines.
Sofa King stupid crooks forget to close getaway van
A pair of "less than brilliant" thieves make a strategic error in planning their get away after loading a couple nice leather sofas into their panel van. The duo of thieves must of needed some seating for their hideout and decided to help themselves to a couple of sofas from the Sofa King Store.
Their crime spree was cut short as a store employee ran out to rescue the stolen furniture and in their haste to leave the crime scene, they made the job much easier.
CCTV footage shows the men speeding off empty-handed as the store manager stands with the two sofas he's just rescued.
What are the odds that the store would be the Sofa King Store? That is Sofa King funny!
Not Doing Much for Job Security
Still this past week, a policeman in Worcestershire, England put his fellow policemen on alert after seeing a strange light shining over the area of Clent Hills. He contacted a sergeant that he was going to launch an investigation. Unfortunately, 20 minutes later he had to call back to the station and admit he didn't need backup. He located the source of the light.
Oopsie...what the officer was seeing was the light from the full moon. To add to his embarrassment, the gaffe was detailed in the latest edition of a Police magazine.
There is always a good side to everything. Now the other officers have someone to make fun of.
