Criminals Without Manners

The Miami Herald informs us this day that a serial burglar's habit of dipping and spitting has tied him to a string of burglaries in the Tahlequah, Oklahoma area. It seems that Stilwell, Oklahoma chief of police Chad Smith was investigating a burglary of an insurance office noticed a gob of tobacco spit on papers. 

He also knew that none of the women who worked there indulged, even though that took some sleuthing in that part of the world, cowgirls being cowgirls.

A DNA sample was sent off to the lab and it piqued the interest of investigators who were interested in one Randy Lee Shoopman Jr.  A warrant was obtained for a DNA sample and there was your soon to be extradited from California perpetrator.

The moral of the story is twofold. Spitting is a bad habit and criminals are stupid.
