Graduated to a Life of Crime

Lawrence Dixon and Carl Dudley Crabtree were arrested inside a high school in Key West, Fla., after police found a pile of loot ready to be loaded into their car. An employee alerted officers after seeing the suspicious characters — both adults — looking around in the school office. Police say the men’s haul included: coins taken from vending machines, a computer, power tools, 30 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets from the cafeteria, “and, for some reason, a red and white graduation tassel.” (RC/WTSP Tampa) ...The obvious reason: neither of them had one.
