    A thief in Sweden, who forgot to cover his tracks in the snow and was easily apprehended by police. The thief left a trail of footprints in the snow from a burglarized psychiatric ward to his apartment. Police discovered a set of footprints in the fresh snow leading from the building to a nearby apartment and right to his door. Police said the shoes of a man inside the apartment matched the footprints found in the snow. It doesn't get much easier than that.

    Xavier Lott, who thought he could trick police by using his brother's name, but had it backfire when he learned his brother was wanted by police. Lott thought he might have had an outstanding warrant, so he used his brother's name after a traffic stop. It turns out he didn't. However, his brother did. He was taken into custody on one count of impersonation.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....
     A 23-year-old Henrico, Virginia man who learned if you want to get even with an ex-girlfriend, don't post naked photos of her on Facebook, especially photos of when she was still underage. The real bonehead play was when he tagged the girl's sister in the post. Now the wronged Romeo is looking at fines, and jail time.

Tommie Lee Jordan, 52, and Perry York, 47, a pair of fake cops, who were caught by a pair of real St. Paul, Minnesota cops while they were going through the pockets of another man. After their arrest, York and Jordan denied robbing the man, and said they only asked for a cigarette and showed the victim photographs of naked women on their cellphones. The real cops took the fake cops off to jail and showed them to a real jail cell. They will also have a court date with a real judge in November.
