Victor Delfi woke up on the morning of June 12, found he didn't have any money and got the brilliant idea to rob a bank, according to the FBI.
After shoplifting a pair of pantyhose and pulling them over his head, the Illinois man allegedly walked into the Lincoln Park Savings Bank, claimed he had a gun and made off with over $5,000.
But the money contained a dye pack, which exploded soon after he took the cash.
Of course the ink got all over the money, making it obvious that it had been stolen and rendering it useless, which is the ingenious point of these exploding packs.
Because only a total idiot would try to spend the tainted money, let alone attempt to deposit it in his bank account, right?
And this is why Victor Delfi is our dumb criminal of the day — because he deposited the money, say authorities. And not just in one bank, but three different banks.
Victor Delfi, you hang tight because although it's only June, you might just be in the running for Dumb Criminal of the Year!
