Sure, Memphis is rough, but come on!

Mississippi’s Sun Herald recently reported that two men from Memphis were arrested and charged with grand larceny after trying to rob a bank in Oakland, Mississippi.

But what really caught our eye was this: “Police from Oakland, deputies from Yalobusha and Tallahatchie counties, state troopers and Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries officers were involved in the arrests.”

Wildlife and fisheries officers? That seems a little excessive. Why not just call in lion tamers or Dog the bounty hunter?

The Memphis men took $11,000 in the hold-up, but police believe that all the money has been recovered.
