Dumb Criminal Stimulus Package

Sometimes the President is an inspiration.

Police in Miami, FL, got the brilliant idea to offer stimulus checks to known fugitives, in an effort to make arrests.

The department sent letters to criminals offering stimulus checks. A hot line number was provided and appointments were made for them to collect stimulus money at a local auditorium decorated with “South Florida Stimulus Coalition” banners.

When suspects arrived to pick up checks, they were identified and arrested. Charges ranged from grand theft to attempted murder.

The sting operation was called "Operation Show Me the Money."
