Chatham-Kent police have named what they’re calling the “dumbest criminal of 2013”.

Earlier this year, a man driving erratically was stopped and issued two traffic tickets.

Constable Renee Cowell says “it’s likely that the tickets were enough to ruin the driver’s day, but the driver further complicated matters for himself.”

As the officer was speaking to the driver outside his vehicle, police say the man used his shirt to wipe his eyes, revealing a plastic baggie with drugs that he had taped to his chest.

The officer noticed the drugs hanging off of the man and arrested him for drug possession.
