At least this guy, who was caught when he got trapped trying to get into the Knoxville Museum of Art, could reach his cell phone to let them know he was trapped:
Police and firefighters reached the roof, found a rope and cable and followed them to a vent shaft. Peering inside, they spotted Smith about 45 feet down.
“Mission failed,” he told them.
Hoisted up and read his rights, Smith told police he was a “special agent from the United States Illuminati, badge number 0931” and had rappelled onto the museum from a helicopter, a police report said.
He said he was following orders to “defuse and confiscate” a Soviet-made nuclear warhead, specifically a “MERV6SS-22AN” warhead, according to the report. The bomb supposedly was hidden in a blue, plastic cow sculpture in the museum basement, he said.
However, Smith told officers his “agency” called while he was in air-vent limbo to say it made a mistake and the bomb might be in a Memphis museum instead.
Now he’s held on a $2000 bond. I’m positive this is a case of mistaken identity.
