Dumb Criminals, Siphon Sewer from Motor Home, Napping Speeder, Smuggling Lizards, Believe It or Not?

We all have our blonde moments but check out these dumb criminals. Did they really think they could get away with their crimes? Here are of the dumbest crooks Kidzworld came across.

1 In Las Vegas, Don Astorga was caught violating the Endangered Species Act. According to authorities, police noticed some unusual moving bulges around Don's groin area while he was at the Las Vegas airport and arrested him. Don had put lizards in socks and then stuffed them down his pants. That would explain the moving bulges.

1 An undercover officer pulled over a speeding car. The speeder then jumped into the back seat and laid down. Unsure if he was going for a weapon or what he was doing, the officer called for a backup unit. When backup arrived, they walked up the car. A female was sitting in the front passenger side so the officer asked, "What's he doing?" She said she didn't know.

The officer asked the man what he was doing but he didn't say anything and pretended to be asleep. The policewoman asked him several times what he was doing and told him to get up. The man pretended to "wake up" and claimed that he wasn't driving the car. He insisted the officer had the wrong car and that he'd been asleep in the back seat, not speeding down the highway! The officers didn't believe the napping story and it turned out the dumb criminal was wanted on other charges.

1 Police got a call one morning from Dennis Quigly, the owner of a motor home. Dennis had been inside his motor home when he heard weird noises from outside. Apparently, a thief was trying to siphon gas from his vehicle. (Siphoning is when you transport liquid from one place to another, usually using a rubber hose.) You gotta suck on the hose to get the liquid moving, sometimes getting a mouthful. This thief sure got a mouthful - of sewage! He'd sucked from the wrong tank. Police found vomit on the ground beside a young man who was curled up in a ball. No charges were pressed cuz Dennis thought the dumb thief had suffered enough.

Are these some of the dumbest criminals or what? Tell us if you think all or any of these stories are true. Do you think we made them all up? Take our poll or

1 I think that all of them are made up except the one about the man that was sleep because I think somebody would do something as stupid as that.

Last week I wrote about Dead Bodies - people who've done eccentric things with their bodies after death. Walt Disney never had his body frozen although this story has been going around for many years. He's buried in a cemetary. However, the stuffed body of Jeremy Bentham really does attend annual meetings. We weren't making up the story about Honore Fragonard either. It is also true. Here's what you guys thought:

None of these guys really did that with their body. 25%
All of these stories are true. 18%
Some of them are true. 37%
I don't know. 18%
