How Dumb Can Criminals Be? Oh Yes, This Dumb.

A felon and his girl friend seem to have deliberately tried to sneak in a gun by the brilliant move of passing it in a purse through an x-ray machine - at a Courthouse.

It didn't work out well for him, or her for that matter.

The Detroit Free Press: 2 arrested trying to sneak loaded gun into Michigan courthouse

The Berrien County sheriff’s office says 40-year-old Arnelda Jackson is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, resisting police and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Also charged is 37-year-old Molly Jackson who faces carrying a concealed weapon and resisting police charges.

A man and woman were passing through security when the handgun was spotted this morning by a court X-ray machine.

Authorities say the man grabbed the purse and he and the woman ran from the courthouse in St. Joseph. Deputies and bailiffs caught them in a parking lot.

His problem as a career criminal (he's got some convictions for marijuana manufacture, manslaughter and other stuff, he has) likely started when his mom named him Arnelda, and it went all downhill from there.

Yep. They take security very serious there, especially after the shootout they had in that court.

I used to work there. Nice people, nice place.

Wait, wait. Can't be true. A felon can't own a gun. 'Cause gun laws.
