One Ringy Dingy, Two Ringy Dingy, Busted!

Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Glen Snow for sending in today’s report from Somerset County, Maine, where our bozo had a good thing going. He would randomly dial numbers in the area and claim to be calling on behalf of the grand jury, saying that the recipient had missed jury duty and would be arrested if he didn’t pay a fine or make a “donation” to the Sheriff’s Department. He would arrange to then personally pick up the money. Of course there was no such policy set up by the police department. Things were going well until he dialed the private line of a Maine state trooper, who told him he knew this was a scam and if he called again he would be arrested. Guess what? He called again. Bad idea. Officers tracked down the number and our bozo was placed under arrest.
