“Dumb Crooks USA” is a website created by Rickabaugh Publishing, LLC.

This site includes stories published in the print edition of The Jail Report, which is published throughout the Carolinas and Georgia. (Website: http://thejailreport.com/)

Dumb Crooks USA takes a look at some of the craziest crimes and the silly suspects accused of committing them across this nation.

Why do we call them dumb? Isn’t that mean? Well, have you ever heard of a smart crime? By its nature, crime is dumb and so those who commit them are dumb. So we simply call them “dumb crooks.”

As we say in every story, we get our facts from law enforcement officials, and they usually always involve charges, not convictions. And all suspects should be considered innocent until proven guilty.

The Jail Report is a creation of South Carolina resident Greg Rickabaugh, a 1994 graduate of the University of South Carolina. Greg has been a crime reporter for papers across South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia, writing for The Daily Reflector in Greenville, NC, The Augusta Chronicle in Augusta, Ga., and The Charlotte Observer in Charlotte, N.C.
