A hilarious collection of all-new true stories of dumb criminals committing stupid crimes

A thief breaks into a car, only to leave his phone, and his social media profile, behind. A man robs a supermarket, but in the excitement, he forgets his eight-year-old son in the store. A murder suspect hides in a ceiling, which collapses, dropping him at the feet of police. A woman finds her stolen bike on Craigslist and, on meeting up with the thief, takes it for a trial ride—and never comes back. A gang of thieves fills their van so full of stolen oranges that it draws the attention of everyone on the road, including some inquisitive cops. A drunken man leads police on a low-speed chase on his lawn tractor, only to be arrested when he runs out of gas.

Whether they leave behind clues that quickly lead to their capture, or drop counterfeit money for the authorities to find, there’s no shortage of law-breakers who seem intent on getting caught. The World’s Even Dumber Criminals is full of new, unbelievable-but-true stories about foolish people who put the wrong in wrongdoing
