Well, well, well,  looks like we have another brilliant mastermind in the world of attempted Amarillo robberies. Because it's not like Amarillo doesn't have enough real robberies for APD to deal with.

Give it up for the man who walked into Dillard's at Westgate Mall around 7:15 p.m. last Saturday and yelled, "this is a robbery! Everyone get on the ground!" Only to leave empty-handed like a complete failure.

The scare caused by the "robber" made bystanders go into hiding, believing that this could be a real attempted robbery, but thankfully their worries of a violent robbery did not come true.

The good news is that no one was hurt during this ridiculous attempt at robbery. The bad news is that we now have to add one more criminal to the list of people who have no clue how to commit a crime correctly.

Amarillo police are now on the hunt for this "robber" who forgot that robbing a store requires actually taking something valuable. I mean, why bother stealing cash or merchandise when you can just scare the living daylights out of innocent shoppers?

In conclusion, let's hope that the Amarillo police catch this wannabe robber and bring him to justice. Or maybe just give him a participation trophy for his effort when he is behind bars. After all, it takes a certain level of stupidity to attempt a robbery without actually stealing anything.

So next time you consider faking a robbery just remember that it's all risk, no reward and that's just not worth it.

Thrilled to Be There: the Smiling Mugshots of Hutchinson County

Hutchinson County has plenty of people who have committed a criminal blunder (or two). And just like any other bigger city, jail is no fun. However, some of the residents of Borger and Stinnett are believers in keeping their spirits high in the face of adversity.

Not sure what we mean?

Well....let's just say that Randall County's cheerful inmates aren't the only ones who seem happy to be arrested....While there’s nothing funny about committing a crime, these offenders in Hutchinson County certainly do know how to light up a pod with their smile :-)

RANKED: America's Top 12 Best-Looking State Trooper Cruisers

Did you know that there is a brotherhood of state troopers called the American Association of State Troopers (AAST)? Their goal: PROTECT. PROVIDE. CONNECTAccording to their website the AAST was formed in 1989 when a "small group of Florida state troopers had the vision to create an association that would unite state troopers across the country and assist them by providing valuable benefits and services."

Each year the AAST releases a calendar of the best looking state trooper cruisers. Ranking is determined by their Facebook followers. It's all for a great cause too. Proceeds benefit the AAST Foundation, which provides higher education scholarships for AAST troopers' children dependents. A noble cause by any measure.
