Marshanna Harris id=s a dumb crook


Marshanna Harris has been awarded the tag of the dumbest thief ever. According to Latest.com, Harris' stupidity tops even the gang of crooks who tried to steal honey from a bee hive and got stung so bad or the cruel guy who bit a lap dog because it bit him first.

This is how Latest put it:

"When it comes to stupid credit card thievery, no one can rival the idiocy of Marshanna Harris.

The case of Harris started last July, when she decided to go shopping with a credit card taken from a stolen purse.

She successfully made a number of purchases around town and then decided to pop into a beauty store.

Getting greedy, she racked up a $430 bill in beauty supplies. When the clerk asked for identification, she had none. So, they made a deal. He would agree to process to the transaction if she let him take a photo of her holding the card.

For some reason, Harris did not think providing photographic evidence of her crime was a bad thing, so she agreed and even smiled for the picture.

One month later, police followed up with the victim who said that she had been charged for stuff at the beauty supply store.

So the clerk gave police the photo, leading them straight to Marshanna. Given both her smiling face, the credit card and her rather distinctive tattoos are in full display in the photo, it was hard to argue it was not her.

Somehow, though, Marshanna is not just stupid, she is also lucky. Earlier this month, the judge accepted a plea deal that sentenced her to two years of probation, 100 hours of community service, $531 in court costs and zero time in jail."
