Yes, There Is Such A Thing As "Bad Publicity"
Just ask Vern Potter. Seems old Vern was wanted for insurance fraud relating to a personal injury claim from an automobile accident. Obviously he didn't get enough to retire on, because he took a job with a roofing company. Just recently, he was up on the roof of an elementary school, shoveling snow off, when a photographer from the New Hampshire Union Leader took his picture. Well sir, it made the papers, and was seen by a Corcord, New Hampshire policman, who recognized Vern. So the police went to the school and got their man.
