Police were on the lookout for a Chicago man who had been  
throwing bricks through jewelry store windows and making off  
with the loot. However, it wasn't too hard to catch him  
after he threw a brick into a Plexiglas window. The brick  
bounced back, smacking him in the head and knocking him out  
cold until the police arrived.  

In Portsmouth, RI, Gregory Rosa was charged with a string of  
vending machine robberies when first he fled from police  
when they spotted him loitering around a vending machine and  
then tried to post his $400 bail in coins.  

Two Kentucky men tried to pull the front off a cash machine  
by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their  
pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the  
machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck.  
Scared, they left the scene and drove home. Too bad the  
chain wasstill attached to the machine. With their bumper  
still attached to the chain. With their vehicle's license  
plate still attached to the bumper. Nice....  

A man was arrested for stealing a car. When he was taken to  
court for his arraignment the judge asked, how do you plead?  
Instead of saying guilty or not guilty the man said: "Before  
we go any further, judge, let me explain why I stole the  
car." Amazingly, the judge ruled in record time.  

The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked  
into a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan at 7:50am, flashed  
a gun and demanded cash. The clerk said he couldn't open the  
cash register without a food order. When the man ordered  
onion rings, the clerk said they weren't available for  
breakfast. Frustrated, the man walked away.
