The case of the polite parole violator

See all posts about dumb crooks and kooky crimesIn the dead of winter, when you’re three sheets to the wind, tired and far from home, a police station can look like an inviting crash pad, particularly if you’re a man of limited means. That might be the explanation for the bizarre behaviour of a paroled federal prisoner who showed up at the HQ of the constabulary in the Friendly City, as Belleville, in eastern Ontario, is known. Police noted, dryly, that:

At approx 4 a.m. an extremely intoxicated male attended the front desk of the police station advising that he was breaching his parole conditions and proceed (sic) to list all of the conditions being breached

While it clearly wasn’t a hot crime story, someone at the Belleville PD with a wry sense of humour thought to put the story out in a release (read it after the jump).
