What a long, strange year it's been; especially for stupid criminals here in Wyoming.
Here's a look back at the five dumbest crimes of 2016 in the Cowboy State:
1. "Hooking for cheeseburgers isn't normal" - That's how Casper Police Detective Dan Dundas summed up a bizarre prostitution sting in October...
A group of teens in Maryland accused of credit card theft have been identified thanks to incriminating photo booth pics they took of themselves holding the card. Oh well. No one ever said you had to be smart to commit fraud.
Missouri high school student Kaitlyn Booth probably thought she was pulling off the mother of all pranks when she changed a fellow student's last name to an offensive term in the school's yearbook, but now the joke's on her. Booth has been arrested and could be charged with a felony.
In our experience, parents generally let their small children drive when they're too drunk to drive themselves. But a father in Ohio was apparently stone cold sober when he let his 9-year-old daughter drive the family car. Can't blame alcohol for this one, dude. That dumb decision was all yours.
It turns out to make it onto a list of the dumbest criminals, you have to actually be pretty dumb. Granted, we can't all be masterminds, but it probably doesn't take much to know you shouldn't make a YouTube video boasting about the bank you just robbed. Or tweet about punching a guy in the face. Nor should you get into a fist fight over a piece of birthday cake.
