If you're running a meth lab, you're probably a dumbass to begin with. But this guy is some kind of super-dumbass:
A funeral home might be a place for eternal rest, but police say an Arkansas man saw an opportunity to build a methamphetamine lab undisturbed by the living. There was just one problem — the funeral home was across the street from the sheriff's office.

Officers said Robert Lee Lewis, 43, left the light on in the basement of the Higginbotham Funeral Home in Walnut Ridge on Dec. 3. Officers noticed the light on after hours and walked into the funeral home through an open door.

Inside, police said they found all the components necessary to build a meth lab. Officers arrested Lewis, a former employee at the funeral home, when he returned.
Seriously, if they had a Nobel Prize for drug-related dumbassery, he'd be a shoo-in. How hard is it to turn off a light and lock a door?

Oh, and setting up your meth lab across the street from the cops is none too bright, either.
