BosGuy brain teaser

brain teaserEach Friday morning I post a riddle or brain teaser.  The idea is to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain.

I’m confident you’ll see through this week’s riddle and figure it out.

This week’s riddle:  Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer. They don’t know what he looks like but they know his name is John and that he is inside the house. Inside the house is a carpenter, mechanic, plumber and fireman playing poker. Without hesitation they immediately arrest the fireman. How do they know who to arrest?
