Sheriff impersonators arrested after misspelling 'sheriff'

Three men were arrested Thursday in Fresno, California, on Thursday in connection with home robberies and impersonating police officers. Something was off about their disguises, though.

Ah, yup, there it is. Sheriff — spelled with only one F. That gets 'em every time.

While it's not clear if the misspelling actually led to their arrest — it likely didn't help.

According to the Fresno County Sheriff's Department, the trio is suspected of posing as law enforcement officers and raiding locations where marijuana was being grown.

Along with the poorly spelled green flight suits, officers said they found other law enforcement-related gear, including security badges and an expandable baton.

A pump-action shotgun and ammo were found in an SUV believed to be associated with the robberies.

There have been other, albeit more minor, instances of criminal misspelling.

In August, a woman was arrested after keying two cars — her boyfriend's and a girlfriend. On her girlfriend's car, she scribbled the word "wore."

We're guessing you can figure out what she was going for there. It's something that, according to the Stamford Advocate, was enough for police to get a warrant for her arrest.

And in February, some graffiti bandits scrawled obscene images on an Indiana bridge, including a misspelled message to the devil — "Hail Satin."
