    Fleeing thief stops to smoke crack

    Fleeing thief stops to smoke crack

    Tuesday, November 28, 2006

    A fleeing thief was caught by police after he repeatedly paused during the pursuit to smoke crack cocaine.

    The (alleged) criminal mastermind in question was identified as 45-year-old Perry Quinton of Stratford, Connecticut. According to police, he had been driving a stolen car and attempting to pay for petrol with cards belonging to the owner of the car.

    The Connecticut Post reports that the exciting chase began when Quinton abandoned the stolen car near the P.T. Barnum housing complex in the city of Bridgeport. (Yes, it really was named after the circus magnate P.T. Barnum. It's little details like that which make life worth living.)

    After abandoning the car, with officers in pursuit, Quinton climbed over a fence. Having scaled the fence, he took a quick breather to smoke a little crack.

    The police not having caught up with him by this point, he headed off through the local seaport, and went to stand on a boat. Flushed with the success of his previous crack break, he decided to have another one.

    He was still stood on the boat smoking crack when officers apprehended him. He is being held in jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.


    Talk about dumb criminals! What a way to show society you got your act together.
