Bozo criminal for today wins our Bozo Award for World’s Worst Timing. From Columbus, Ohio coes the story of Bozo Ricky Lynn Cain who walked into a bank one branch, handed a holdup note to the teller and headed for the door with a wad of cash. Bozo Ricky didn’t get very far, however. It just so happened that at the exact time he was robbing the bank, Officer Duane Ward was there, conducting a seminar for bank employees on what to do in case of a holdup. After handing our bozo the cash, the teller shouted to Officer Ward, "Go get him, he just robbed us!" Officer Ward gave chase and caught up with the bozo in the parking lot.
