More Stupid
Two 15-year-old boys were arrested on vandalism charges in Grand Island, Neb., after they allegedly drove a pickup truck through the yards of multiple houses. It didn’t take Hall County Sheriff’s Department too long to crack the case. “The truck had the name of the business on the side,” a department spokesman said. “It makes it a little easier to solve the crime when they do that.” The truck, and business, is owned by one of the suspect’s fathers, and the boys targeted the houses of schoolmates, which made it easy for the victims to remember the name on the truck.
