Stupid Criminal of the Day

From our local news website:

Last night, Longview, Texas, Police Officer Jason Hampton got a text message from a person named "Sam" in reference to a drug deal. It was apparent that "Sam" sent the message to the wrong phone number.

Officers met "Sam" at the agreed-upon location and immediately smelled the odor of marijuana coming from "Sam's" vehicle, police said. They also found marijuana in the vehicle.

Samuel Odom and Sarah Gillette were booked into the Gregg County jail for possession of marijuana. Odom also had three Upshur County warrants for his arrest.

And there you have our Stupid Criminal of The Day Award.

In the book "Homicide", on which the tv series was based, there was a detective who had a sign on or hanging near his desk, and the words on that sign is appropriate for this occasion, "Thank God for stupid people, for they make my job easier."
