Stupid Criminal News

Memo to criminals who bust out of jail: Don't break silly laws while out on the lam.
From the San Fran Chronicle: A convicted bank robber who walked out of his medium-security federal prison near Santa Barbara last week was caught five days later trying to cheat BART out of its fare at the Powell Station in San Francisco, BART police said.
Authorities said Buchon Buchanan, 40, escaped from Lompoc prison last week and the U.S. Marshals Service issued a no-bail arrest warrant for him.
Buchanan admitted to robbing or attempting to rob 22 banks in the Bay Area and in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange counties. He was arrested in San Francisco in 2003, hours after he bought a book titled “The Big Bad Book of American Bank Robbery,” and was sentenced to nine years in prison.
But after he escaped early last week, he found his way back to San Francisco.
He was arrested by BART police Sunday afternoon after forcing his way through the orange fare gates at Powell Station. Officers then discovered he was wanted for escape.
Maybe he needs to learn how to walk instead of going on the BART.
