Crime and punishment can be a complicated subject, but sometimes it gets downright strange. Robberies gone wrong and attempts to cash billion-dollar checks are just some of the wacky crimes covered in this book. With colorful photographs and graphics bring these crimes to life, readers learn that criminals often have strange motivations for the odd things they do. Some even commit crimes you might never think would be punishable by law—like laughing too loud—or crimes from history that rarely happen today like train robbing.
