Another Oregon Idiot
I posted a few stories last week about some wacky crimes and other morons in Central Oregon, even got a few linked on OregonLive's Odd Blog, but I don't hold a candle to this guy:
A Troutdale man's hopes of seeing the Gresham Police Department up close were fulfilled when he was arrested for burglary.
Link from Jack.
Wade Silva, 22, told Gresham police that he was interested in riding along on a patrol "to see what it's like." He told officers he had relatives who work as police officers in other states.
But a standard records check to clear Silva for the ride-along revealed that he had an outstanding felony arrest warrant for burglary.
Police snagged Silva when he showed up Tuesday for his ride-along, 25 minutes late.
