With Friends Like That...

Coming to you straight from the "true dumb crime" files we bring you the story of Adam D. Bierig. Mr. Bierig was desperate for beer money. He found a wallet sitting inside a police cruiser. He broke into the police cruiser and stole the wallet - and the officer's badge.

Mr. Bierig was arrested after his friend turned him in to police.

The break-in itself was simple enough -- prosecutors say Bierig spotted a wallet in the locked car, which he entered after forcing the window down far enough to reach the lock. He then fled, prosecutors say, with the Lakewood officer's badge, police ID, and credit cards in his hand.

Bierig allegedly showed the badge to a friend before discarding. The other man then reported the theft to police.

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Bierig said he needed the money because he was homeless and he bought beer with the money.
