21 People Share Stories About The Smartest Criminals They’ve Ever Encountered

  Published on 

The smartest masterminds don’t get caught – that is why asking the police officers wouldn’t work. Redditor ItzTacoTimee is curious about real-life crime investigation stories from police officers. But when he asked, “Who’s the smartest criminal you’ve ever encountered?” it wasn’t the police that answered.

Witnesses, business owners, and even self-claimed friends of these criminals stepped out to tell their stories. The best criminal stunts are really the ones that police failed to catch. The greatest heist can only be called so if the thief managed to run away with it. And we’ll open with one of history’s greatest acts by D.B. Cooper.
