My Award For Biggest Moron Of 2007 Goes To…

This Guy…

Orlando Taylor, pictured above, robbed an HSBC bank at the Fulton Mall in Brooklyn last Friday at 10:30 AM. On Saturday, he strolled two blocks further down the street and robbed a Bank of America branch. On Monday, he robbed the same Bank of America branch at 10:00 AM and then again at 2:20 PM. On the same day! On Tuesday, the police finally decided to post a bunch of officers in both the HSBC and Bank of America branches in regular uniform and in plainclothes, hoping the idiot would show up again. And sure enough, at about 9:00AM on Tuesday morning, Taylor was caught outside the HSBC branch after he had peered into the window, seen the police, and turned around to walk away. In his pocket was a note similar to the ones he had used in the first three robberies threatening violence if he wasn’t handed some cash. Congratulations Orlando. That’s some serious brain-power on display.

    So it took 4 bank robberies in a 2-block area over a span of 4 days before the police planned to handle a potential 5th robbery? Maybe Orlando isn’t the only one displaying some serious brainpower…

    If he had a friend check in the window for him, he’d probably still be robbing banks.

    Good for him! It’s hard to find that kind of loyalty in thieves these days. Maybe he was hoping that one of the two banks would give him a toaster for being such a loyal robber.

    Not a very smart robber. Would think he’d at least go to the next town to rob another one and do something different to throw them off the trail.
