Here is a story off Fox News. It just goes to show how stupid criminal are. Darwin's rule continues to apply:

- Peanut


A family joke turned into trouble, which led to a lie, which led to even more trouble for a Nebraska man and his friends.

The unnamed 22-year-old man strolled into a gas station in the Omaha suburb of La Vista Sunday evening and announced that he had a gun, reports the Omaha World-Herald.

The counter clerk didn't take the statement seriously. She was the man's mother.

Unfortunately for him, another customer called police, who sped to the scene.

The cops caught up to the faux robber in the gas station's parking lot, where he was standing outside his car with a friend.

It all would have ended there if the car hadn't been reeking of marijuana.

A search of the vehicle turned up $603 in cash and a quarter-pound of pot, a far from insubstantial amount.

Even worse, both the joker and his buddy were on parole, meaning they'd certainly be heading back to prison.

So they called a female friend from jail and asked her to tell police the pot was hers. Without a record, they told her, she'd spend at most one night behind bars.

She agreed and came down to the station to 'fess up.

Too bad for all three friends that jailhouse phone calls are monitored. She was arrested for false reporting.
