If there were a criminal handbook, you would think the chapter on the fallacy of getting away with a “hit and run” would be read more often.
Apparently a man who smashed into a Cheyenne church did not read that chapter nor did he read about the individual in Worland last week who smashed into a parked car and then took off — only to be caught immediately after the police department posted the video captured by a doorbell cam.
Instead the individual who ran his truck into a church in broad daylight at a busy intersection and then took off — must think he and his green truck were made out of the same material as Wonder Woman’s invisible plane.
The only glitch with his ingenious escape plan is that neither he nor his 20+ year-old green Dodge Durango were invisible and people in the area all had functioning eyes.
As a result, the Cheyenne Police Department knows the accident happened at 9:04am on Friday. They know the church he inexplicably hit was the Cheyenne Baptist Temple. They know the truck was a green Dodge Durango (a really poor color selection for criminals). They know his truck was made from 1996 – 2002. They know the individual is a “young male adult wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue jeans.”
Now, while his description is fairly common, his dumb, damaged green truck is not.
That means if he’s from Cheyenne, some people know who he is. Other people have seen or will see the damaged green truck.
And yes, he can hide his green truck. And if he’s a body shop whiz, then he’s got that going for him.
And if he’s from out of town, perhaps he limped his green truck home to wherever he lives.
Our guess is it’s only a matter of days. And what was once probably just one charge is now a multiple of charges.
He could face jail time, suspension of his license, financial penalties, and his car insurance (assuming he has insurance — which based on his apparent IQ is unlikely) will not pay for the damage.
Not to mention there will tons of lawyers who will very happily want to represent the church.
If you know who this
idiot individual might be, just contact the Cheyenne Police Department.
