Wyoming’s Five Dumbest Criminals of 2016
What a long, strange year it's been; especially for stupid criminals here in Wyoming.
Here's a look back at the five dumbest crimes of 2016 in the Cowboy State:
1. "Hooking for cheeseburgers isn't normal" - That's how Casper Police Detective Dan Dundas summed up a bizarre prostitution sting in October.
David Magnus was charged with solicitation after offering to give an undercover officer a quarter pounder and fries in exchange for sex. He was arrested after returning with the food in hand.
2. Drunk Tourist Steals Pizza Delivery Man's Car in Jackson - It's been a banner year for dumb tourists, but this guy gives new meaning to the term "touron".
A 21-year-old man from Vermont got drunk in Jackson, ditched his friends, then stole a pizza delivery guy's car, drove to the airport and hopped a plane back home.
3. Drunk Woman Steals Forklift to Move Car - Friends don't let friends drive drunk, especially a forklift.
In October, a Wyoming State Forestry Division employee was arrested for DUI after stealing a forklift from work and using it to move a car that was blocking her driveway.
Adding insult to injury, Cheyenne Police found a cooler of beer in the cab of the forklift.
4. Peanut Butter and Jelly Bandit Gets Busted - Zachary Munoz was charged with three counts of burglary after the Cheyenne Police Department matched his DNA to a partially eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwich left at the crime scene.
Now, the "PB& J Bandit" could be eating prison food for the next 30 years.
After video surfaced featuring four members ignoring the posted warning signs and trespassing onto the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, they sparked international outrage and pled guilty to several misdemeanors.
Their once-lucrative clothing business has since been shut down and federal charges are still pending for three of the four members.
