Crim­i­nal ar­rested af­ter ask­ing po­lice to check whether he was a wanted man

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

In an episode that would not look out of place on ‘Aus­tria’s Dumb­est Crim­i­nals’, a man has been ar­rested af­ter walk­ing into a po­lice sta­tion to check whether he was a wanted man.

The al­leged fraud­ster, walked into a po­lice sta­tion in Salzburg to see if the cops had any­thing on him.

Un­der the im­pres­sion that no­body with an ar­rest war­rant out on them would go to the po­lice to find this out, the po­lice went away to check for him.

Af­ter a short time look­ing into it, of­fi­cers found that there was an ar­rest war­rant out on the 59-year-old from a Vi­en­nese court, and he was un­der sus­pi­cion on four counts of em­bez­zle­ment and fraud.

The dimwit­ted crim­i­nal was quickly ar­rested and taken to a Salzburg prison, where he cur­rently re­mains.

Culled from in­de­pen­dent.
