This has got to be one the best stories of stupid criminals I’ve heard about. Jason Hamielec and Brian Johnson, of Madison Wisconsin ripped off DVDs and video games from a local Target. They planned to sell the stuff to a local used video store. As the guys were in headed to the video store to unload the merchandise one of the rocket scientist butt dialed 911.
The 911 operator listened to the call for about hour. During the call Hamielec and Johnson discussed the details of their crime as well as where they planned to unload the stuff. They even gave a description of the vehicle. They were charged with retail theft. Guess they can’t be charged with stupidity.
