Default Worst Disguise Ever

You just gotta LOL...



Robbers caught using 'the worst disguise ever'





October 30, 2009 - 10:35AM



It's been labelled the worst disguise ever - two men arrested over a burglary attempt in the US were found with fake beards and masks scrawled on their faces with a permanent marker.

Police stopped the car of Matthew McNelly, 23, and Joey Miller, 20 after it matched the description of a vehicle used by two men who allegedly tried to break into an Iowa apartment last Friday night.

When officers looked inside the 1994 Buick Roadmaster, they were surprised to find the men with masks, beards and moustaches painted on their face in some sort of rudimentary disguise.

"It's a little weird," police chief Jeff Cayler told Radio Iowa.

"I've been here long enough that I've seen a lot of things, but this one's a little different compared to most ... I mean, just the face thing is what sets it apart."

Mugshots of the pair show the black ink scribbles on their faces.

A number of US blogs, including the popular Huffington Post, described it as "the worst disguise ever".


The men may have been under the influence of alcohol when they devised the idea for their disguises.

"For what it's worth, it appeared they had both been drinking quite a bit and maybe weren't thinking quite rationally," Mr Cayler said.

One of the men also believed the owner of the apartment they were trying to rob was dating his girlfriend, he said.

McNelly and Miller were each charged with attempted second-degree burglary and released on bail.

Mr Cayler said numerous media outlets had contacted him about the case, while pictures of the two men have raced around the internet and blogosphere.



'Dumb and Dumber'

In 2005, Australians Luke Carroll and Anthony Prince made international headlines after they held up a Colorado bank while wearing name tags and speaking in Australian accents.

The pair were reportedly regulars at the bank, so were quickly identified by their accents.

They also took photos of themselves posing with the stolen cash in a public toilet; photos that were later discovered by police on a digital camera and which became key prosecution evidence.

The pair were labelled "Dumb and Dumber" by the media.

Well you'd hope that no one could be so dumb unassisted

The one on the left looks like Catwoman.

If it was done in Sharpie, he is going to learn some intimate social graces in the joint.
