Crooks: Dumber & Dumbest

Police are hunting two robbers who failed to grasp a fundamental rule of crime - mask your identity. CCTV cameras caught them at a Colorado convenience store wearing thongs over their faces. One wore a green thong while the other opted for blue - but the pair's nose, mouth and chin were barely covered. The rest of their face was clearly visible, police in Arvada say. Officers also have a few more clues to work with as one of the men failed to cover up a distinctive tattoo on his arm. (Link)

A Chicago man is being hailed as the US's dumbest crook after he gave workers at a garage his mobile phone number and told them to phone him when the manager arrived with the keys to the safe. CBS reporter Joanie Lum has more.(link)
