    Last week I wrote about Dumb Criminals. Two of the three stories were true. Don Astorga really did get busted trying to smuggle lizards in his underwear and the story about the speeding driver who claimed to be napping in the back seat was also true. The dumb criminal who siphoned sewage from a motor home instead of gas was made-up. Here's what you guys thought:
