Least Competent Criminals

Confused: (1) Christopher Furay, 33, pleaded guilty in Pittsburgh in April to six bank robberies -- the first four in which surveillance video revealed him to have a reddish beard and the last two in which the video revealed him to be wearing a fake red beard covering his reddish beard. Furay did not explain.

(2) In June, police in Roseville, Minnesota, quickly located J&J Construction's missing equipment trailer (stolen from a work site) -- parked near the Washington County Courthouse, where the thief apparently had left it while he answered a court summons. WCCO-TV reported that the man was soon jailed on a separate charge. [Associated Press via WTAE-TV (Pittsburgh), 4-21-2015] [WCCO-TV (Minneapolis), 6-30-2015]
