“I swear officer, my names is C. R. Ook!”

October 13, 2010

BRI fan Geoff Moulton sends us this story from the “Dumb Crook With Really Bad Luck” file:

RCMP Sgt. Boyd Merrill said Copeman made another mistake when police questioned him.

“They asked the driver to identify himself under the authority of the Highway Traffic Act, which he tried to do using a false name, but the false name he used was actually somebody who was wanted, as well,” said Merrill.

It’s just like that old adage we just made up says: Crime doesn’t pay—and dumb crime pays even less!
