    Well, there's this one:

    Pierce County Sheriff's Spokesman Ed Troyer says the suspect entered the bank around 3:10 wearing a dish towel around his head and handed a note demanding cash. The man then left on foot and fled in to the south.

    My favorite part is where he asks for a ride! The criminal mastermind at work!


    He ran a couple of blocks to the service station, where he approached several customers and asked for a ride.

    Way back when, about 20 years ago, I knew a cop who told me the dumbest criminal he ever dealt with was a guy who robbed a Dunkin Donuts while wearing a bright red, orange and green Hawaiian shirt. He "fled" on foot walking down the road from the Dunkin Donuts. The DD is located on a four lane road in a very busy section of Rochester. The cop said how dumb do you have to be to rob a DD. You know a cop is coming by in the next five minutes.

    The dude didn't even try to hide by walking behind the business' on the road.
