I was surfing around the web this afternoon looking for items of interest that I could post on the California Fire News blog when I came across this article:
SoCal Robbery Suspect Caught Trying to Become Policeman
February 28, 2009
CHULA VISTA -- A robbery suspect was arrested when he showed up to take an test to become a police officer.
Police say 40-year-old Romeo Montillano was arrested and booked into San Diego County jail. Montillano was being sought by police in connection with a December robbery at a Chula Vista Kmart where a man took a TV and other items, then beat up store employees who confronted him.
A short time later, investigators learned Montillano had signed up to take the February police officer's examination.
Police contacted Montillano, and the suspect promised to show up to take the test.
When the suspect showed up on test day, he was arrested for investigation of robbery and other crimes.
Police say that as Montillano was being arrested, he asked whether he could still take the police exam or reapply at some later date. They told him no.
Ok, I'm laughing. This guy wanted to be a cop, but he's on the run for stealing a bunch of stuff and beating up people in the store he was stealing from.... Uhm... DUMB! I guess this is one of those times when you ask "What was he thinking?" and then you answer your self by saying "He wasn't thinking!!!". Too stupid!! The guy deserves to go to jail just for being dumb! LOL
So, since the news in this post gave me a giggle, I will add a picture that might give you folks a giggle... (Gotta love the LOLcats!)
