And the award for dumb criminal goes to.....

Tomaceeta Hampton mug shot from the Mecklenburg County Sherrifs Office

This seasons dumb criminal award goes to Tomacetta Hampton. She was part of the clan that stole Denny Hamlins Lexus LS on August 18th. Now you have to be a pretty dumb criminal to steal a NASCAR drivers vehicle, especially one that has video surveillance. Police released the surveillance video last week that showed two men and one woman stealing the car. The Police said that Hampton was not the woman shown on the video. BUT, she was driving the Lexus around town with Denny Hamlins tags still intact.

I don't know much about Grand Theft Auto, other than I played the game a few times years ago but I would think there is some common ground rules in pulling this off. One would think if you are part of a car heist involving someone famous, you may not want to drive the car around town with the tags on it. Just sayin...

She needs to contact Michael Waltrip, as he knows how to get away with criminal behavior. Crash your vehicle early in the AM when he was most assuredly drunk,leave the scene( did you hear that Scott Wimmer, Get caught with a potent additive in your fuel, wiggle out of that, steal a sway bar from another team, them give the excuse that he and Jack agreed to disagree. What's to disagree about, you stole from another team.She should have been paying attention to Waltrip as he does have some Teflon on him. Of course these things always seem to happen when FOX is doing the NASCAR races so they can avoid really exposing what he did.

Well she needs a brother like DW who has FOX in his pocket and I know she doesn't. Criminals with $$$ get away free, people like her should get a job foe MWR.
