    US thieves sentenced after boasting on TV show

    US thieves sentenced after boasting on TV show




    A US couple who boasted on a TV show they made as much as $3,500 (2,318) a week by selling shoplifted toys online have been sentenced to prison terms.

    Matthew Eaton, 34, got 27 months in jail. His wife Laura Eaton, 27, was sentenced to one year.

    The couple from southern California pleaded guilty to conspiracy to transport stolen goods.

    The pair were arrested last September - nearly a year after an appearance on the Dr Phil television show.

    The couple from San Marcos, north of San Diego, were sentenced by a district judge on Monday.

    Assistant US Attorney Nicole Acton Jones had earlier said the couple made at least $100,000 from June 2007 to March 2009 by stealing Lego toy kits, transporting them across state lines and selling them on eBay and other online auction sites, the San Diego 6 website reported.

    Didn't you have a battleship go down in Argentina? The hull was made of Styrofoam wasn't it?

    In Geoffrey Archers prison diaries he tells of one inmate who went out and robbed a chemist after first stealing a toy gun from another shop. It was Xmas and his mrs had nagged him to go out and get some money. When he got back home with the loot she said it was not enough and told him to out and get more. He went back to rob the same chemists again and was promptly arrested by the Police who had arrived to investigate his first visit. He got 7 years.

    He should have gotten some xanax during the first robbery so he could get stoned and not hear the bitch. I could not imagine doing a robbery at a drug store and just taking money.

    Yeah... the smart ones never get caught... but I do get the feeling there's a disproportionate number of dumb criminals out there.

    About 10 years back the feds sent out invitations to a lottery with big prizes to the last known address of wanted criminals. Then they arrested everyone who showed up. Reportedly, the scheme had an unexpected success rate, like 70%. Hundreds got caught.

    The booty of a robbery isn't the prize, telling the tale of how you did it is. There are entire books dedicated to stupid thieves.

    Isn't South London known for high IQs and low crime rates?

    Remind yourself of where North Africa is on the map. Remember how well your tank divisions did there?

    I like the English (or have they all immigrated by now). Too bad they're so stuck in their ways they can't change a tactic until they're down to the last soldier.

    Thanks for radar though.
