Our second genius is a 19 year old would be car thief named Travis Lavar Fields. Fields forgot one major rule of car theft, don't leave any personal belongings when you abandon the vehicle. What did he leave? His drivers license. He had burglarized a house and stole a laptop and a woman's purse. Two days later he returned and stole the couples car. Since he had the keys it wasn't hard to do. Police were alerted immediately and found the car in the neighborhood. They staked the car out and caught Fields when he returned to it. As if he already hadn't implicated himself enough, he had used a credit card from the purse he had stole to pay two of his utility bills.
The third winner is 37 year old Raymond Gramby. Gramby stole two bottles of Olde English malt liquor from a deli. When the owner tried to stop him he pulled a knife and fled on foot. He was chased by police. When they arrived at Gramby's apartment another man answered the door and he was arrested. The police were going to take the man back to the deli for identification when Gramby stuck his head out a window and called out "You've got the wrong man, you idiots." The officers quickly rectified that mistake.
Finally, 31 year old Eric T. Ambrose came up with a novel reason for stealing. Ambrose was at a Pilot truck stop and took three packs of peanut M&M’S, two black T-shirts, a 20 oz. Bud Light and single packages each of Circus Peanuts candy, chewing tobacco, Wonka Nerds candy, Planters cashews, Reese’s Pieces and Sour Patch candy, plus two each of large Snickers candy bars and beef jerky packages. Ambrose denied taking anything, but his bulging pockets gave him away. He told officers that he had served in Iraq and therefore was entitled to steal all of the M&M's he wanted. They were not sure if he actually had a military record.
Al and Travis demonstrated they are much smarter than I am. Quebec was once called New France. Some nameless person was thinking Ontario. He has been ordered to start learning about Canadian things. He will start with the movie Strange Brew.
