TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
    38-year-old Anthony Parrish, who put up a pot growing tent, nestled safely in the woods where no one could find it... right by a private police K-9 training facility. A K-9 team in training ended up with a real find when a police dog sniffed out all of Parrish's 79 pot plants. He has been arrested. Who's a good doggie?

AND THEN THERE'S .....
    Jorge Sanchez, 35, who armed himself with a bunch of bungee cords and proceeded to use them to strap 24 quarts of oil to his body and walk out of a Costco in California. Sanchez had an oil change business and since oil can be expensive, decided to take matters into his own hands and tried to shoplift the oil. As you might expect, it was a little tough for him to walk and he did attract a little attention. Store employees gave chase and nine quarts of oil fell off as he was running. The police joined in and captured him a few blocks away. Police found 50 more quarts of oil in the trunk of Sanchez's car and are investigating if they were also stolen.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....
    Claudia Reaney, 49, a third grade teacher at Buffalo Point Elementary School in Syracuse, New York, who must have missed the school memo about bringing heroin to school. On a tip, police brought a drug sniffing dog to the school. First, the dog sniffed something in a car in the parking lot, a car belonging to Reaney. Next the dog alerted on Reaney's classroom where it registered another hit .... on the teacher's purse. Inside, officers found several foils and straws that tested positive for heroin.

OKAY, ONE MORE .....
    Loretta Lacy, 49, who managed to rack up four speeding tickets in three hours. Why? Lacy raced 525 miles from Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Racine, Wisconsin to see her granddaughter's middle-school dance. According to reports, Lacy was pulled over for doing 112 mph and ticketed for speeding, no insurance, and possession of marijuana. Lacy didn't stop there. She then received a tickets for going 99 mph and two for going 88 mph. Despite her best efforts, Lacy did not make it to her granddaughter's dance on time.
