TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Christopher Kieter, 26, who thought he had come up with the perfect crime, but let his stupidity get in the way. Keiter posed as a fire inspector and visited offices around the city allegedly to look for violations. While making his rounds, he would grab various items and simply walk out with them. The streak of brilliance came to an end when one business required to sign in at the front desk. Unfortunately for him, he signed in using his real name. He was caught by investigators a short time later.
OR HOW 'BOUT .....
Jeremiah Hintz, 32, who was nabbed in an undercover sex sting over the weekend and was due to graduate today, Wednesday, January 16, from the Basic Law Enforcement Academy. Sounds like he got a hands-on course in the incarceration process. Hintz was one of 78 suspects busted during a four day operation targeting e-commerce sites where folks had advertised to commit prostitution or solicit for prostitution. Sounds like bail money would be an appropriate graduation gift.
