bozo criminal for today comes from the International File. From Manchester, England comes the story of bozo Ryan Boothe who decided to hold up the branch of the Bank of Scotland on the hottest day of the year. And for such a hot day, he showed definite bozo skills in selecting his choice of apparel-a heavy winter coat and fur hat. He was able to get the teller to place about $8500 in a shopping bag and he headed for the exit where his getaway bicycle was waiting. He quickly discovered it’s tough to pedal while wearing a parka and to complicate things the dye packet in the money exploded, engulfing him in a cloud of red smoke. Momentarily stunned, he fell from the bicycle, losing his hat and sending his money scattering. As he tried to gather his cash and hat, the bank’s security camera got a clear shot of his face which the cops used to apprehend him.
