07 Feb 2008, America's Dumbest Criminals, did anyone ever watch that program. Even Jay Leno does it from time to time. There's nothing like relying on simple human nature to help make an arrest. Today, we had a call that a guy knew where his stolen truck and the suspect where located and wanted us to go get it and make the arrest. Well, we show up and find this is something of an apartment complex and we have no idea what apartment the suspect might be in. We locate the stolen truck. We decide that since the victim gave us a phone number for the suspect, we should give him a call.
phone rings
Hey, is **** there?
"Yes, just a minute.......
Hey ****, I need you to come get me at the corner of 10th and Penn.
Yeah, this is Tony, come meet me at the corner down here, and hurry.
We hang up and wait. One minute goes by and someone exits one of the apartments and gets into the stolen vehicle. We immediately pull him over, and it's our guy. Arrest made.
Mrs. Dub and Miss Dub are doing fine. We are staying busy. Hope all is well with you.
Be safe and have a great day.

So were the peak minutes or off peak minutes that you used to call people that you don't know. Just kiddin, but hey good job on the detective work. I hope I can only be as half as good a cop as you.

Glad to hear everyone is doing well. Tell those girls that TC and I said hello. Have you noticed the change in our lives. I have not had time much to call but anyway I guess I should soon, or you call me, whatever. Don't you love dumb people; they make life pretty funny. Stay safe

How did the car owner know who stole it and their phone number?
But, I agree, stupid criminals are great.

I'm glad things are well in Oklahoma. I grew up in Tulsa.
Yep, there are stupid criminals in all 50 states. A friend of mine is the chief of police here in our Arkansas town, and he can fill a book with stupid criminal tricks.
Be safe out there.
