Bozo criminal for today comes from the International File in Stockholm, Sweden and it proves the old adage that if you’re a bozo and at first you don’t succeed, don’t try again. Our bozos had a plan to break into an electronics store by drilling through the wall from a neighboring suite of offices. On their first attempt, instead of boring into the electronics store, they drilled into a newspaper office housed in the same building. So they moved over a few feet and drilled again. This time they bored into an optician’s office (maybe they should have stolen some glasses while they were there). Undeterred, they tried a third time and broke into an empty office. On their fourth try, they hit paydirt, the electronics store. Unfortunately, they also set off the burglar alarm. Having finally had enough, they left. Police are looking for them.
