The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Ryan A. Mueller. He gets the award for the following.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. - A man has been charged with sneaking into a toddler's bedroom and stealing $20 from a piggy bank while the 2-year-old girl slept. Authorities say DNA evidence linked Ryan A. Mueller, 30, of Sheboygan Falls to the crime that occurred Aug. 10 in Wilson.

Authorities say the girl's mother was in another room with another child when she saw a light turn on in her 2-year-old daughter's room. She walked into the girl's bedroom and saw a man shaking the piggy bank as the girl slept.

The man fled before police arrived, stealing the money but leaving the piggy bank. Authorities say blood was found on a window blind where the burglar had forced his way into the home.

Mueller was charged Thursday with felony burglary, which carries a penalty of up to 9 1/2 years in prison. His bond was set at $10,000, and a preliminary hearing was set for next Wednesday.

Stealing $20 from a two-year-old's piggy bank doesn't just mark Ryan A. Mueller as desperate, but also as today's Knucklehead of the Day.

Call me odd, but does anyone else see something peculiar regarding a two year old having $20 (or more) in a piggy bank?
