Is that a cucumber in your sock?

Gary Rough walked into a bet­ting par­lor hop­ing to rob the place but his plan unrav­eled when the clerk cucumberhe approached refused to coop­er­ate.  It could have been because he was point­ing a cucum­ber inside a red sock instead of an actual gun. When offi­cers arrived to cart him off to the pokey, Rough said, “It was a dare. It was a [bleep­ing] cucum­ber. Am I get­ting the jail for this? I am not a rob­ber!”  The judge found him guilty of far worse – sen­tenc­ing him to three years for attempted robbery

Mario Lopez, who was wanted in more than a hun­dred break-ins in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia, went to the Yolo County, CA Jail to turn him­self in. but when he got there, the staff was too busy to deal with his surrender…so he left.  Despite the fact that he’s listed as “armed and dan­ger­ous” on his wanted sheet!  Accord­ing to the clerk on duty, Lopez waited for 15 min­utes before tak­ing off.

An Okla­homa man got hauled in for rob­bery charges after he tried to pull off a bank heist by pass­ing a hold-up note … writ­ten on the back of a check he’d stolen from his mom!  Christo­pher Ful­ton walked up to the teller and slipped her the note, which read, “You know what to do or we all die. I will shoot you first $500 $100 $50 $20 $10.” Before she could act, he got cold feet and made a run for it – but not before sur­veil­lance cam­era snapped a photo that ran in the paper the next day. Ful­ton turned him­self in soon after, telling cops he’d been on a four-day meth binge, and believed his body was in the bank, but not his mind.
