Pretty crappy way to get caught

Dog p**p


Dog isn’t this man’s best friend. Josue Herrios-Coronilla, 18, drove his black Camaro on the wrong side of the road Wednesday and crashed into the yard of man who owns four dogs, police said.

Police found crushed bushes, a damaged fence, an inoperable car — and a fresh shoe print in a pile of dog feces.

Following an odoriferous trail down the street, Sgt. Dale Gunter noticed a white van driving toward him. When he asked the passenger to step out, he noticed the smell of alcohol on the man’s breath and evidence all over his shoes.

Two British adventurers drove to Timbuktu and back in a truck fuelled by chocolate.

Andy Pag, 34, and John Grimshaw, 39, made the 2,600-mile trip in salvaged Ford Iveco Cargo lorry and Land Cruisers, using biodiesel made from waste chocolate.

Probably just liked hospital food…

Con man’s three years in hospitals

An Austrian con man lived in hospitals for three years after tricking more than 90 clinics into admitting him with fake illnesses. Jobless Franz Steiger, 59, from Muerzzuschlag, treated the hospitals like a hotel and stayed in 93 across the country.

But he was caught out when he claimed he had been suffering from dizzy spells after being knocked off a motorbike – and examining doctors grew suspicious when they could find no other injuries and checked with other hospitals.

Corpse goes for a ride on office chair

corpse on office chair

Two men have been arrested in New York for wheeling a dead friend through the streets in an office chair and trying to cash his cheque.

David Dalaia and James O’Hare, were seen pushing Virgilio Cintron’s body from their Manhattan apartment to a check-cashing store a block away.

“Hell’s Kitchen has a rich history but this is one for the books,” police spokesman Paul Browne told the New York Times. “The witnesses saw the two pushing the chair with Cintron flopping from side to side and the two individuals propping him up.”

The men left Cintron’s body outside the store, went inside and tried to cash his check, worth about [$320].

…………….

The crowd gathering caught the eye of an off duty detective who called a couple of uniformed officers who promptly arrested these two rocket scientists.
