Another Idiot Launches A (Brief) "Life Of Crime"

This seems to be the week for boneheads-in-training for The World's Dumbest Criminals. On Tuesday, there was this guy, and now we have a real winner who apparently aspired to be a jewel thief.

FARGO, N.D. - Diamond earrings stolen from a college fundraiser were recovered when a Minnesota man tried to have them appraised at the jewelry store that donated them, authorities said. Police said the man was arrested after he brought the $4,600 earrings to Wimmer's Jewelry at the West Acres mall. Store owner Brad Wimmer said the man had the original box along with the description of the jewelry.

"It was all very goofy," Wimmer said. "The value of the earrings was right on the description."

Goofy, right.

The value of the earrings automatically makes the theft a felony, so hasta la bye bye, bonehead.
