B.O.L.O. for Bozo

Jacqueline Cutright, 70, says a man wearing a clown mask broke into her Akron, Ohio, house. “I was on the commode, so it was kind of a surprise” when he burst in, she said later, laughing. “I said, ‘Boy, did you break into the wrong house. A poor person lives here.” He took $28 from her purse and some costume jewelry, then took off in her car. According to police, he only made it to the end of the street before he rolled the car over twice, witnessed by the officers responding to Cutright’s 911 call. They said the robber then crawled out the window and confessed. Cory Buckley, 22, faces a long list of charges, including robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with a deadly weapon, kidnaping, and theft. (JW/WJW Cleveland) ...Maybe he could have avoided the rollover if he had remembered to take off his mask.
