Bozo News Hawk award for today goes to Ed Pennell who passed along this story via the internet. From Cardiff, New South Wales comes the story of bozo Mark Cason who walked into the local post office, flashed a gun-replica cigarette lighter and demanded all the money in the safe. The postmaster produced $15,000, most of it in coins. This was a very large and heavy package, so our bozo asked two children standing in the post office to get the door for him. They did, and in the process wrote down the license number of his getaway car. He managed to make it to a nearby hotel, stashing his loot in the hotel’s safe. He checked in under an assumed name and told the receptionist that if the police came by looking for Mark Cason, to tell them he wasn’t there. They did, she gave them his room number and he was arrested.
