A tip o' the hat to Brent F., who e-mailed me the link to this story.
Today's Doofus is from Utah.
Charging documents from U.S. District Court allege Todd Waller Markham visited a Washington Federal Savings bank in Murray last week and gave the teller a note demanding cash. The court papers say he was given money and left.
But the reverse side of the note Markham allegedly handed over contained information about him from a drug screening, including his name, Social Security number and birth date.
Authorities say they cross-referenced the photo on Markham's driver's license against surveillance video and arrested him at his apartment.
There's more at the link, including a photograph of the hapless hoodlum.
Well . . . when a crook's so helpful, it'd be a shame not to accommodate him, wouldn't it? I can only imagine the reaction of his fellow inmates in prison when they hear how he got caught! It'll take him years to live that down . . . but then, he's likely to have plenty of time behind bars in which to do so!
