FRESNO, Calif. - Getting locked in a car trunk is bad enough, but locking yourself in the trunk of the car you're trying to rip off is worse.
A spokesman for the Sheriff's Department said investigators captured "the dumbest criminal of the day'' on Sunday.
A security guard in Fresno called police when he heard banging coming from the inside of a car trunk and authorities figured a crime victim was locked inside. But police said it turned out to be who they believe is the perp.
According to investigators, the man crawled into the trunk while he was ransacking the car. But he managed to lock himself inside as he was trying to climb out.Police have not released the suspect's name. He's been booked on two counts of theft.
If I was him I'd pay the police to keep my name out of it.
