Annals of stupid criminals

Posted By on Fri, Sep 21, 2007 at 3:44 PM

Arkansas has given us plenty of reasons to consider how we use our cell phones. We've heard the arguments against talking and driving. We know what can happen when high-profile sports personalities start texting. We've seen the dangers of checking text messages behind the wheel of a police cruiser. Now, from West Virginia, why you should never use a text message to contact your drug dealer.

I guess this guy wasn't flat-out stupid so much as he was indiscreet--he doesn't hold a candle to that guy who tried to rob a Little Rock bank right in front of a cop a couple of weeks ago--but if you've got shady business, you'd best do it with a little more care.
