How Stupid Can Stupid Get? Man Steals Car After Wreck In Order To Get Home From The Hospital

  BOWLING GREEN, Ky. _ Man, there are some stupid people in this world.  Or should I say some dumb criminals.  This is one of those guys who is a complete idiot!  Why didn't he just call someone to come pick him up to take him home after he was released from the hospital? Or at least call a taxi cab.  Then a friend or family member could have paid the tab perhaps.
   And I'm sure that he didn't have any health insurance either.  So it's the taxpayers like us that will be paying his hospital bill too not to mention the fact that we'll have to provide him with a cot and three square meals while he sits in jail.  So just how stupid can stupid get?
   Check out this crime story that the crackerjack crime beat reporter, Deborah Highland wrote for the Bowling Green  Daily News. Deborah does a fantastic job for the newspaper.


A Butler County man who needed a ride home from The Medical Center after receiving treatment for injuries suffered in a car wreck is accused of stealing a Lexus from a Bowling Green dealership in order to get back home to Morgantown.
William Peterson Jr. called the Bowling Green Police Department on Monday to report a break-in at Certified Auto, 1001 U.S. 31-W By-Pass. Someone had used a flower pot to break the front window to gain access into the building, according to police records.
Once inside, the thief rummaged through desk drawers before finding vehicle keys in a closet. Numerous keys were scattered around the office. Peterson told police that a 1997 Lexus SC300 was missing from the lot, records show.
As police prepared to process the crime scene, Butler County Sheriff Scottie Ward called to say that he had recovered the Lexus and was with the man believed to have taken the car, Timothy Jones Sr., 24, according to records.
Ward found Jones after Jones' mother called Ward to tell him that her son had driven a car home that probably wasn't his, Ward said. Ward drove to 7559 Caneyville Road in Morgantown to talk to Jones, who asked the sheriff for a ride back to Bowling Green so that he could talk to city police here about the incident.
Jones, 24, whose address is listed as 7559 Caneyville Road, told Bowling Green police that he had been taken to The Medical Center on Monday after being involved in a car wreck in Butler County. He was released at 1:30 a.m. and could not get a ride home from anyone. As he was walking, he noticed Certified Auto. Jones told police that the door to the business was unlocked and denied breaking a window to get in, records show.
Jones said he found several keys in a closet and took several sets outside with him, according to police records. He told police that he took the Lexus and drove home.
Police charged Jones with third-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking-auto. He is being held in the Warren County Regional Jail on a $6,000 bond, according to online jail records. He is scheduled for a court appearance Friday in Warren District Court.
