Doofus Of The Day #883

Today’s award goes to a dumb crook in England.

Serial offender Timothy Broad, 30, chose a pedal cycle as his getaway vehicle for the robbery at a One Stop Store in Clacton.

But as he fled after the raid he fell off his bike three times.

His bobble-hat balaclava also flew off in one of the crashes, revealing his face.

Bank notes stolen in the raid fluttered out of his pocket and initially he chased them up and down the road before abandoning the chase and running off.

He was identified by DNA taken from the balaclava and blood on the abandoned cycle.

Broad, formerly of Walton Road, Clacton, was jailed for three and a half years at Chelmsford Crown Court.

There’s more at the link.

I’m surprised he hasn’t been given an award for entertaining the local cops with his comedy routine!



  1. Wow that's local to my father (and me this week since I'm visiting him). I'll probably run to Clacton later today in fact.
