Bozo criminal for today comes from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Patrick Silva walked into a convenience store. That much we know, the other details are sketchy. Our bozo says he asked for change and the clerk handed him $1600. The clerk says he threatened her with a gun if she didn’t hand over the money. Our bozo’s explanation? He says he was just scratching his stomach, not reaching for a gun. After receiving the cash, he ran from the store. Our bozo’s explanation? He says anyone handed a lot of cash would take the money and run. He didn’t get far. Police found him at a nearby gas station hiding in the bed of a pickup. He offered no explanation for his hiding place. He’s under arrest.
