Default Youve gotta love Floridians!!!

Who says living in Fl isn't fun!!!!

Subject: smart florida crooks

A man who absolutely hated his wife's cat decided to get rid of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and leaving him at the park.

As he was nearing home, the cat was walking up the driveway.

The next day, he decided to drive the cat 40 blocks away and try the same thing.

As he was driving back into his driveway, there was the cat! He kept taking the cat farther and farther away, but the darn cat would always beat him home.

At last, he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right and so on until he reached what he thought was a safe distance from his home and he left the cat there.

Hours later, the man calls home to his wife: "Jen, is the cat there?"

"Yes," the wife answers. "Why do you ask?"

Frustrated, the man answers: "Put that lousy cat on the phone. I'm lost and I need directions!"

Florida Jacksonville, FL It was reported by Kathleen Sweeney, a Jacksonville Times-Union staff writer, that a bank robber saved Jacksonville police some time by writing the demand note on the back of a police report of his previous arrest.


* Ft. Lauderdale, FL Actor Brad Renfro, the 18-year-old actor best known for his co-starring role in the movie "The Client", and a buddy allegedly tried to steal a 45 foot yacht from its berth at a Ft. Lauderdale marina.

Our smart guys got the big boat started and were on their way...almost.

They forgot to untie the dock lines and when they tried to pull away, the ropes tightened and yanked the $175,000 boat back to the dock. Nearby boaters were awakened by the ruckus and held the actor and his friend until the police arrived.


* Lake City, FL

* A 20-year-old girl was arrested in Lake City, Florida for robbery of a Howard Johnson's motel. She was armed with only an electric chainsaw, which was not plugged in.


* Homosassa, FL A man went into a hardware store to apply for a job. After completing his application he went to the section of the store that sold guns. He asked to see a couple guns, and the attendant left for a moment.

The guy stole the guns. Not only was he video-taped, the police used the address on his application to go to his house and arrest him.


* Boynton Beach, FL Michael Harrison and Kevin Carter were arrested and charged with armed robbery and murder. Why did they want the money? To attend the police academy.


* Jacksonville, FL Two men intended on robbbing a bank during the night.

They had a stick of dynamite that was supposed to be dropped in a bank vault deposit. The two men mistook a car wash coin deposit for the bank vault deposit. When the stick of dynamite exploded hundreds of coins shot out every where like a shotgun injuring the two men. They were stunned long enough for the police to arrive and arrest them for their crime.


* Orlando, FL A few months ago, a rapist learned that being dumb can be fatal. After breaking into a woman's apartment and holding her at knife-point, he began assaulting his victim. In the throes of misguided passion, the assailant dropped his knife onto the bed. The victim picked it up and stabbed him to death.

You should, most Floridians have moved away from the cities mentioned in those articles. They are full of foreigners and northerners.
