Dumb Crook OTW: Wanted Felon Caught Because of his Fart
So yeah, it's the basic principles we learned while playing hide and seek as kids, if you're hiding, don't give away your position. A wanted Missouri felon didn't learn this lesson.
Clay County Sheriff's Office in Missouri were searching for an unidentified felon according to khou.com. However, this felon must have eaten some beans before his run and hide act because the sound and smell of his fart lead officers to his location.
Laughing with a face palm is accepted here.
The sheriff office posted their capture on their Facebook page:
The comments are great, too:
So there you go kids, when hiding from the cops, make sure your fart is not only silent but of the not so deadly type.
