This guy has a frequent-guest card at the jail.
Officers [in Alexandria, Louisiana] responded to the report of a man stuck in the chimney of a business early Friday morning.
Employees told officers that when they arrived at the business, they could hear a man yelling. They found he was stuck.
While officers were in route, police say the man was able to free himself from the chimney. He then reportedly threw a brick at an employee before running from the store. –KCRG, ABC9 (story here)
Serendipity postscript: After posting this story–truly my kind of “dumb criminal” one–I received an email from my friend, the great Belladonna Rogers saying that she had seen the story (independently of me) and immediately thought, “This is Charles’ kind of story.” She knows me perfectly.
