Elliott James, Prosecutor Orleans Parish – From the Chronicles of America’s Dumbest Criminals
FRANCE: There are certain tools that one must have when robbing a bank. The first is an appropriate mask. One French man debunked the idea of appropriate masking and used instead – his underwear. 57-year old Daniel Anfray strolled inside his neighborhood bank armed with a pocket knife and the underwear he wore on his head. He was immediately recognized and arrested. Not surprising, Anfray had consumed a large amount of alcohol – 0.2 – before commencing his failed misdeed.
Stupidity was the mitigation to this crime. Anfray was sentenced to only eight months in prison, four of which are suspended, and two years probation.
