Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Mark Fitzgerald for sending in today’s report. From San Antonio, Texas comes the story of bozo Hector Garcia who ripped off his insurance company and a car alarm company by faking the theft of his truck. He got $7000 and a new pickup out of the deal and was so proud of himself he just had to tell someone what he had done. Unfortunately, he told the wrong someone. He called a San Antonio radio talk show host and explained in detail how his little scam had worked. An FBI agent listening to the show took interest in the case and using the date and other information our bozo had given out freely over the air was able to figure out exactly which case he was talking about. A warrant was issued and our bozo now faces up to five years in jail.
