Criminal Mastermind of the Week.

Once, many years ago, in a previous century, I worked as a sorted for UPS during the Christmas rush. A package came down the belt that had "somehow" come open. I figure it started out with at least 1/4 lb of fairly high grade weed. It was empty by the time it got to the end of the belt.

At which point it was sent to the "damaged boxes" area, taped shut, and sent on its way. I've often wondered how the recipient reacted.

Maui Gold for South African diamond. Seems fair.

If we must have criminals, may the FSM grant that they be stupid.

I'm not sure who is dumber. This guy or the person that shipped a $160,000 diamond via UPS.

From diamond theft to marijuana... for anyone who's ever wondered what a movie would be like if it started out as The Great Muppet Caper and ended up as Fraggle Rock.
