    Dumb People!

    Some people are so dumb! We had a robber here do the same thing; wrote the hold-up note on the back of his own deposit ticket.
    Dumb, dumb, dumb!

    Suspected Robber Leaves His Name, Address
    From Associated Press
    January 20, 2006 9:08 PM EST

    LOWELL, Mass. - A man who held up banks by claiming he had a bomb in a bag was arrested after police found the bag actually contained books, including a phone book that had a mailing label with the man's full name and address.

    "It was clearly not his best move," Lawrence Police Chief John J. Romero said.

    George Melendez was arrested Thursday at his home in Lowell and charged with the Jan. 6 robbery of a bank in Dracut. Police said he is also likely to face charges in bank robberies in Lawrence and Salem, N.H.

    Investigators said Melendez would hand tellers a note claiming to have a bomb in his bag and demand large bills. As he left with the cash, he would leave behind the bag, prompting Dracut and Salem police to call in bomb squads as a precaution.

    In each case, the satchel-type bags contained tangled wires and books.

    After he allegedly hit a Sovereign Bank in Lawrence last week, police found a Lowell-area phone book in the bag the robber had left behind. They went to the address listed on the label and arrested Melendez, who also fit the bank tellers' description of the robber.

    "It was so easy, so simple, it was hard to believe," Romero told The Eagle-Tribune.

    Melendez was arraigned Friday at Saints Memorial Medical Center in Lowell, where he was taken after complaining of chest pains. He was held on $10,000 cash bail and is scheduled to appear in Lowell District Court on Feb. 16 for a probable cause hearing.

    talk about sub-par.

    when i went to king kong i watched the previews and saw one called THE INSIDE MAN. or something to that effect. it looked like a pretty good movie, other than the fact it had some really good tips or small details on how to rob a bank more effectively to people who generally wouldnt think of things like that. i wondered if this was such a good thing, giving those people those ideas! :shock:

    Thank God that most criminals are STUPID...that way we can keep them off the streets and our property and loved ones safe!

    Let's not forget to also thank our police officers (like enlvikeman) who prove time and again that they are infinitely smarter than the criminals that they pursue!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
