Convicted by a soda can.

Man burglarizes home, soda pop DNA gets him convicted

Every criminal isn’t as dumb as Brandon Campbell, so it’s always important to keep valuable in a lockbox.

The repeat offender left behind DNA evidence on a soda can during a robbery, giving a court the proof they needed to convict this genius.

“I don’t think that there’s any doubt at all that this guy is the last guy picked on the prison Brain Bowl team,” said¬†Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler, told CBS4, which called Campbell a contender for “World’s Dumbest Criminal.”

So why was the news source so harsh on Campbell? It’s like because the latest conviction comes after a series of boneheaded crimes.

Last year, Campbell was arrested for stealing a GPS device. Ironically, he was fitted with his own GPS device, a court-ordered ankle monitor. Now this is when things get interesting.

Wearing the ankle monitor last November, which tracks his location at all times, Campbell decided to burglarize 15 homes. It wasn’t hard for police to figure out who committed those crimes. And now, just months later, Campbell finds himself convicted of burglarizing yet another home, only this time for a pop can he left at the scene of the crime.
