We think these are two guys, but we just can't be sure because of their extensive facial camouflage. They attempted to break into a home in Carroll, Iowa. Luckily, the police are much better trained in facial recognition and identified these robbery suspects with ease.
This guy had it all figured out, at least from the shoulders up anyway. He was wanted by police for stealing a car and decided to disguise himself by painting himself black. And by black, we obviously mean like a Victorian chimney sweep.
A rather lazy man decided to use a professional security agency to kidnap a colleague. Naturally the firm reported him to the police and he was arrested, which proves that if you want a job done properly, you should just do it yourself.
This thrifty robber didn't feel like spending his hard earned (stolen) money on a pricey balaclava (fancy ski mask). So, in a flourish of creativity, he fashioned himself a sticky disguise for his next crime. But, unfortunately for him, he sweated so heavily that the duct tape slipped and revealed his face to the world. That's what you get for cutting corners!
One bold burglar really pushed it when he robbed a Pennsylvania home. Instead of fleeing with his loot bag (yes we assume like in the cartoons), he cooked some chicken and watched TV. The homeowner found him and, of course, he was arrested. No word on if he got to eat his chicken or not.
In January 2014, a 61 year-old man managed to escape Blackburn Correctional Complex, a prison in Kentucky. However, after sleeping for one night in an unheated, abandoned house he turned himself in because he was too cold. Ever heard of a jacket, bro?
A bank robber once demanded money from the teller by handing her a note reading "Need $300 or I'll kill you." It got awkward when the lady couldn't read his handwriting. He then went to re-write the note, giving the woman time to ring the alarm. If he'd only tried harder in school...
A nervous criminal attempted to rob a fishing store in Rochester, Minnesota, but didn't expect such a bizarre welcome. The crook activated Big Mouth Billy Bass, an automated singing fish when he entered the front door. He was so spooked he ran away. Wow, who needs a guard dog when you've got Billy?!
A man was busted for burglary in Minnesota because he just couldn't resist checking his Facebook...on the household computer...which he left...and didn't log out of. The home owner updated the robber's status telling all his Facebook friends that he'd ransacked a house. Bravo sir, bravo.
Where's the worst place to attempt a crime? Right next to a martial arts school, of course! This thief tried to steal thousands of dollars worth of goods from a bicycle store only to be abruptly stopped and restrained by the owner of school. Judo CHOP!
