Dumb criminal news

WSAZ has the story on the “duct tape bandit”:

Robbery is a serious problem for retail stores across our region. But the employees of Shamrock Liquors in Ashland, Kentucky, can’t stop laughing about what happened last Friday at the store along 13th street.

Police say Kasey Kazee walked in to the store with duct tape wrapped around his head to conceal his face.

Fortunately, store manager Bill Steele had some duct tape of his own. Steel had a wooden club wrapped with duct tape that eventually sent the suspect fleeing the store.

Store employee Craig Miller says he chased Kazee to the parking lot, tackled him and held him in a choke positiion until police arrived. An unidentified customer also helped.

Kazee said in a jailhouse interview today police got the wrong man and Kazee says he has no memory of going in to the liquor store. He also says he has no memory of police removing the duct tape.

We asked Kazee how he could deny being the duct tape bandit even though police have photos showing Kazee with the duct tape on and then a photo where Kazee’s face is revealed.

Kazee looked straight at the camera and said, “Do I look like the duct tape bandit to you?”

Miller says Kazee also had a t-shirt pulled up around his head during the robbery attempt. Miller says it reminded him of the “Cornholio” character from the “Beavis and Butthead” cartoon.

LOL. You can watch a video of the report here.
