Dumb Criminals Strike Again

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question 8 Comments

I’m busy wrapping up the  2nd Memphis Cold Case book, so let’s get right to the Mystery Questions!

Writer1Here is last week’s answer and a new Mystery Question!

 The Hefty-bag Caper

A man went into a drug store, pulled a gun, announced a robbery, and pulled a Hefty-bag face mask over his head. How did the police nab him?

  1. One of the clerks saw him before he pulled the Hefty-bag over his face and recognized him as her neighbor.
  2. The drug store had a surveillance camera that caught him pulling the Hefty-bag on.
  3. He forgot to put eyeholes in the Hefty- bag.
  4.  One of the clerks recognized his voice even though he had on the Hefty-bag and called him by name, and he gave up.

And the answer is….#3. He forgot to put eyeholes in the Hefty-bag. Can you imagine the scene???

Now for this week’s Mystery Question:

Two characters park outside a post office and go inside and demand money. As they make their getaway, something goes wrong. Was it:

  1. When they went outside they found their getaway car had been stolen.
  2. When they went outside a policeman was writing them a ticket for parking in a no parking sign just as the alarms go off.
  3. As they ran out the door, the robber holding the money tripped and fell and the security guard captured him.
  4. When the robber with the gun pulled the weapon out, he had forgotten to take the red tip off the end of the toy pistol.

Okay, Mystery Solvers, which one is it? Be sure to share on Facebook and tweet about so others can try to solve it!

    Hi Patricia! I love these mystery questions & trying to figure out the answer 🙂 I took a self-imposed sabbatical for the month of June because my mom and step-dad were visiting from New Zealand for the month and to also watch our son graduate from High School. It was a wonderfully precious time off spent with family! I miss them like crazy and wished they didn’t live halfway across the world so I could see them more often 🙁 Anyway, I’m back and refreshed! My answer to this would be #4 “When the robber with the gun pulled the weapon out, he had forgotten to take the red tip off the end of the toy pistol.” It just sounds so absurb that I can just see it happening, lol! Thanks for another fun guessing game, I love what you come up with every week! Oh yeah, and happy 4th of July! Hope you had a safe 7 fun day.

    Hmm. These mystery questions are tricky! I see your tweet is for #2, which then makes me wonder if that means #2 is the answer, or if you’re purposely trying to mislead everyone! Very suspicious, Patricia. 😉 I’ll go with #2 anyway, in case you’re trying to throw me off the trail. It is the funniest answer. Thanks for the mystery!
