This is not the first time that a criminal has amused the police and the public. In another bizarre incident, a woman from Lousiana who was wanted for a second-degree was apparently unhappy with the pictures officials used on social media asking people to help them identify her. The suspected woman allegedly commented on her own mugshot saying “That ugly picture”. The Crime Stoppers also responded saying “Precious Landry you are always welcome to head over to the Sheriff's Office and take a new picture if you want”.

Another fun story where a German bank robber sent mocking emails to the local police where he mocked the police efforts to arrest him. He first let the officials know that the information that they had was completely wrong. He later also corrected their announcement that he had escaped on foot whereas he had a gateway car. The German police arrested the man a few hours later by tracking his location through his emails.
