Normally I save the unusual crime stories for Friday. However, this one demonstrates such monumental chutzpah on the part of the crook that I couldn't pass it up. The Dallas Morning News Crime Blog had this piece on what has to be one of the weirdest crimes I've seen in a while.
Apparently not for Keithan Kennard Manuel, who faces charges he attempted to rob the Wilmer Police Department Headquarters over the weekend, according to police documents.Needless to say, this robbery didn't end well for this guy.
Manuel, 18, walked into the city's police department offices in the 200 block of East Belt Line Road near Interstate 45 about 8 p.m. on Saturday with his hands covered by a white towel.
He walked up to the dispatch window and pointed a covered hand at a telecommunications operator, the documents said.
"Give me all of your money," Manuel told the startled operator.
