Criminal masterminds are not what they used to be (“I want ONE . . MILLION . . . DOLLARS!”), as evidenced by some collars lately. There was the bloke in Cairns who threw his milkshake on the roadway right in front of a cop car. And then last week they busted a couple who drove through a red light, also seen a police car. When they were intercepted in Cairns North it turned out the car had been stolen in NSW. Doh!
