Just when I thought we got the world's dumbest criminal (the guy that left his resume during a bank robbery) another contender popped up: the robber that wrote his name on the wall at the scene of the crime!
Apart from writing his own name in black marker pen at the Toc H centre in Adlington, Cheshire, Addison also left his gang's name on the wall - The Adlington Massiv!.
The teenager vandalised a Garden Birds of Britain poster by adding "R Gay". He then left a final message to the campsite owners - "thanks for the stay".
Police found him after entering his name in a computer system. Inspector Gareth Woods, of Cheshire Police, said: "This crime is up there with the dumbest of all in the criminal league table. "There are some pretty stupid criminals around, but to leave your own name at the scene of the crime takes the biscuit.
