When you need a smoke, you need a smoke! Two New Berlin, Wisconsin criminals were tracked down, because they are stupid, and they call the Waukesha County Jail home now. If only they had a cigarette to calm down! WISN

James Spoke and Timothy Nissen entered a New Berlin Citgo gas station with a sledgehammer. Busting the glass, making a huge mess. They climbed through the hole, and went right for the cash register. It's what else they stole that is, interesting.

James and Timothy thought it would be their lucky day and grabbed a whole bunch of lottery tickets...and cigarettes.

After this crime was committed, the two tried to cash in some of their winning lotto tickets up the road at another gas station...do you think that was smart? Probably not.

Secondly, the vehicle they used to commit this crime...hmm. There was a sticker on this truck that read "Trinity." As in local "Trinity Construction." They seriously drove their work truck to the scene of the crime. The police contacts the folks at Trinity Construction and they said, yep that's out truck and yep, those are out guys. BUSTED.

So what are the totals here? What did these fellas make off with....drumroll please!

The fellas made off with about $1,260 worth of cigarettes and lottery tickets...The security cameras caught it all. The sledgehammer, the cigarette stealing, the construction truck with logo, everything.

Turns out, both of these Wisconsin men have an extensive criminal background. Quite the shocker, huh?
