Moron Crook For The Day
Not only is he a moron crook, but he's local, too!
A Redmond police officer gave his own "Stupid Criminal of the Year Award" to a 39-year-old transient who thought he could burglarize a gas station/fast-food restaurant by climbing onto the roof and sliding into the deep fryer's grease vent. He got stuck, and covered head to toe in grease for his troubles.The only reason he managed to get out alive is because some folks walking down the street overheard the moron screaming from inside the vent.
The best part? He not only was taken to the Deschutes County Jail, facing charges of second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and possession of burglar's tools and being held on $10,000 bail, but he probably lost his job -- he worked at the store he was trying to break into.
