"This is like something out of 'World's Stupidest Criminals,"' St. Bernard Parish Sheriff Jack Stephens said. "But we'll take any help we can get in solving a crime."
Troy Clouatre, 35, and his aunt, Lisa J. Smith, 47, were being held Friday in St. Bernard Parish Prison on charges of simple burglary and possession of more than $5,000 worth of stolen property. Police did not know if they had an attorney.
