There is a book out called "The Stupid Crook Book" and here is the link where you can read a few excerpts and I have included a sample below.
IT DOESN’T ALWAYS PAY TO ADVERTISE
An inmate at the San Mateo County, California, minimum-security jail decided he’d had enough of prison life and simply strolled away during work release. He got a little tired of walking after a while and stopped at a pay phone to call a friend to come pick him up. But try as he might, the convict couldn’t remember his friend’s phone number, so he called directory assistance to get it. Unfortunately, he accidentally dialed 911 instead of 411, then quickly hung up the phone when a dispatcher answered. The police sent out a cruiser to check on the 911 hang-up anyway and found the man still in the phone booth and still wearing his prison shirt, with the words PROPERTY OF SAN MATEO COUNTY HONOR CAMP written on it. “They could see it though the top of his jacket,” Sheriff’s lieutenant Larry Boss said. At least when they took the inmate back to celebrate his reunion with his prisoners, he was already dressed for the occasion.
