Smooth Criminals December 22, 2008

I thought this was pretty impressive in two ways

1. how smooth the fugitive carrying marijuana was and

2. the clever means of catching them.

CHICAGO  —  There’s more than one way to catch a fugitive. Turns out a promise of extra holiday cash makes an effective trap this time of year.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said Sunday that a fugitive sweep led to the arrest of 230 suspects on warrants for forgery, aggravated battery and other crimes.

More than 60 of those suspects fell for a ruse with a holiday theme. They got invitations to take part in a survey to help retailers figure out the needs of holiday shoppers.

Included was a “scratch off” card redeemable for at least $500 if they brought it along to the hotel where the survey would be conducted. Those who showed up were taken into custody.

One of the fugitives arrived with marijuana in his pocket. Possession of cannabis was added to his charges.
