William Anderson, 51, was arrested after attracting attention by applying for welfare at the
department of social services while driving an H2 Hummer. Thinking it an odd sight, the local sheriff ran the
plates, and the vehicle came up as stolen.
Athens, Georgia: Demetrius Robinson, 28, wanted to rob a Golden Pantry store
late one night, but he needed to pass the time as naturally as possible until he and the clerk were alone, so
he decided to fill out a job application. Not a bad idea, except he left his real name on the application,
along with his uncle's phone number. After he robbed the store, it didn't take long for police to track him
down. He didn't get the job.
Marysville, California: Arthur Cheney, 64, was arrested after police spotted
him driving a car that resembled one used in a local bank robbery. Something told them that they had their
man when they noticed a yellow Post-It note on the car's center console with a handwritten message reading,
"Robbery - 100s and 50s only."
