Criminals continually prove themselves as not the brightest among us.

A crime ring in Japan that dabbled in illegal homemade porno and erectile dysfunction pills was broken up after they accidentally mailed their underground catalogue of goods to the chief of police.

Six men were arrested for possessing obscene material with the intent to sell it in the city of Osaka.

The group delivered their catalogue to random male customers, with three being sent to Osaka's top police officer.

This led to a raid in which 280,000 uncensored DVDs were found, along with 7,000 erectile dysfunction pills.

The men confessed to their crime.

Strict pornography laws in Japan see genitalia and pubic hair censored in movies, and pictures. 

There is, however, an underground trade of illegal non-censored movies, which these men were likely selling.
