Book Description

22 Nov 2013
There are a lot of criminals around - but, fortunately for the rest of us, a lot of them are really quite dense. Like the bungling burglar who logged on to his own Facebook page at his victim's house - and forgot to turn the computer off when he left, or the gormless getaway driver who wrote in his dairy 'Go Porsmouth [sic] Robbery happens' #NAME? Mirror's crime-fighter extraordinaire Andrew Penman has scoured the country for this hilarious collection of those who are not just bad, but also dimvery dim.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious 29 Nov 2013
By susie
Format:Paperback
A really funny book that had me chuckling throughout - I actually bought it as a Christmas present, but ended up reading it myself!
It's a great book to dip in and out of since the entries are really short and there are lots of amusing cartoons dotted through it.
To give you a little taste of what's inside, and please bear in mind that the stories are true, there are

* The robbers who scrawled on their faces with black marker pen rather than wear masks as a disguise, making them look like blokes who had gone mad with felt tips rather than evil criminals - they were quickly arrested
* The getaway driver who, instead of speeding away from the scene of the crime, became the most law-abiding motorist and driving under the speed limit and allowing the police to catch up with him
* The burglar who managed to leave his passport, mobile phone, keys and a prison ID card with his photo on, at the scene of the crime.

Would make a stocking filler for that 'hard-to-buy-for' person in your family!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my what a read. 8 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well everyone knows the saying thick as thieves but oh my really....a massive collection of stories of total bloody idiots I find some of them hard to believe surely no one can be as thick as some of these criminals. Whilst an entertaining read does make you realise why prisons are full and why the courts don't imprison more of them....there would be no room we need more prisons. Well written easy enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars such a laugh 10 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is so funny it is impossible to believe people could be so stupid when they are committing crimes.
Crime I am certain is not funny under any circumstances for the victim but I still thought this book was hilarious.

Interesting book, can' t believe some people stupidity. Some of the facts are so hard to believe, but then when you think about it, it's totally believable. Andrew Penman certainly found some very strange people and what some of them got up to.I'm
