Doofus Of The Day #419

Today's winner is from Rhode Island.

A Rhode Island man who reported a burglary has been arrested after police find marijuana inside his stolen safe.

. . .

According to police, the 45-year-old Riley reported that safe was stolen and later came to the police station to claim it.

When he gave police the security code, police saw two pounds of marijuana and $5,000 in cash inside.

There's more at the link.

Uh . . . yes, well, quite! It's generally considered a faux pas in most criminal circles to give the cops the access code to the evidence they need to charge you with an offense! I wonder if the contents of the safe were known to the two men who stole it? Perhaps that's why they took it in the first place. They're also in custody, so they'll have time to discuss the matter with Mr. Riley at their mutual leisure . . .
