Meet Alberto Saavedra Lopez, common spelling.
Alberto is not someone we would call “Arizona’s best and brightest,” as you will see in the following article.
Alberto Saavedra Lopez, 32, was arrested last week for felony theft after he arrived at the Cottonwood Police Department for a job interview to become a dispatcher.
Police said in a statement that Lopez allegedly stole $5,000 at a Bank of America in Cottonwood between July and September of 2016. Bank officials suspected Lopez, a former employee.
Lopez moved to Phoenix after the theft and kept missing appointments with investigators. An arrest warrant was issued, but Lopez avoided police detection for more than a year. In December, Lopez applied for a dispatch position at the Cottonwood Police Department.
Incredibly, the position required a background check, and Alberto Not-Smarto’s arrest warrant popped up on their screen. Alberto did not get the job, but he did land a reservation at the county jail.

I wonder if he’s one of those dreamers? Dreaming of actually increasing his intelligence level maybe? Looks like he was dreamin’ when he walked into the PD for the interview though. I bet his favorite color is maroon.
Had he applied for a spot in the democrat party of Arizona, he’d be gainfully employed now. Any job with that bunch does not require brain cells.
I am always amazed at how little common sense the average criminal has.
