Brazenly stupid

Sometimes placing the purloined letter in the obvious place does not work at all.

COLLEGE PLACE, Wash. (AP) — Steal a pickup truck in Oregon. Check. Drive it across the border into Washington. Check. Park it across the street from the police department. Oops.

College Place, Wash., Police Chief Dennis Lepiane says police got word Thursday that a pickup stolen in Umatilla (yoo-muh-TIHL'-ah) County, Ore., might be headed for Washington.

It was only about half an hour later when one of his officers saw a vehicle matching the description. It was parked across the street from City Hall, home of the Police Department.
