Least Competent Criminals

(1) Unclear on the Concept: A 34-year-old man was arrested at a Tesco supermarket in Bar Hill, England, on Nov. 12 when he entered the store and threatened employees -- by showing them a photograph of a gun.

(2) Recurring Theme: Two men were arrested easily in Silver City, New Mexico, in December. Thieves had broken into Javalina Coffee House downtown and dragged away the ATM behind their truck. With the help of a witness -- and especially the gouge marks in the street running from the Javalina directly to the nearby residence of the men -- police nabbed the two and were still searching for a third.
