(Fort Worth, Texas-AP) -- Police in Texas say a burglary suspect's mistakes made catching him pretty easy.

Police say they caught the man taking a nap after he allegedly broke into a store in Mineral Wells -- about 50 miles west of Fort Worth.

The store is owned by the wife of the county district attorney.

An employee became suspicious when she arrived to open the store yesterday morning. She noticed someone had used the store's toilet without flushing -- and left a pistol on the bathroom counter.

She then found the man snoozing away on a bed the store had for sale.

After police took the man into custody, the employee said "I think he was a pretty dumb burglar. ":banghead:

He broke into a building owned by the wife of Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the county!?!? Wonder if he'll receive any executed time? :rolleyes:

No one ever said crooks have to be smart! A case in point---

Last week, a friend had her car stolen. It was snatched right out of the parking space in front of her apartment. As is usual with this sort of crime, the police didn't help much so she resigned herself to getting a new car.

Yesterday, she got a call from the cop shop telling her that they had found her car-- out of gas-- and caught the thieves. It was taken by three high-school kids who just drove it around until they ran out of gas. Thinking they would be right back to drive it some more after getting gas, they left their school books in the back seat, one of them left his wallet on the floor and they wrote a note with their phone number so the police wouldn't tow the car while they were gone!

Public school education--- there's nothing like it!

I figure that 90% of the folks the cops catch are the dumb ones. They seem to work hard at being caught. Of course, probably about 90% of the criminals are the dumb oens. The really good ones, the smart ones, make a big score and now own an island somewhere far away...and safe.

Plus, the flush the toilet and put the seat down when they finish.

I guess being a Shillary Snopes Clinton supporter must be pretty tiring.
