(Toledo Blade)   Burglar calls cab for ride home with the fruits of his labor: three flat-screen TVs and some boxes of liquor. Offers to pay cabbie with some of his loot because he lost his wallet. Well, not lost, left at the scene   (toledoblade.com) divider line 23

I still don't get it - if you're going to break into a house, or commit any kind of crime, why do you bring a wallet with you?

/stupid enough to burgle(?), stupid enough to get caught, I guess

If you're going to steal all that crap you may as well go the whole hog and steal the bloody cab too.

Exactly, if not, then come February those TVs are going to be quite useless. Unless he has cable or satellite service or a set top converter. THe article did not go into that, so we can only speculate, but if he was so poor that he had to steal, he probably does not have those in which case those TVs are useless to him in a month.

What an Moran!

You think he was carrying around 3 CRT boat anchors? Dude must be a worlds strongest man contestant to get away from the crime scene on foot if he had those.

You're the moron. HDTV and digital cable are different things. Most newer tv's have digital tuners inside of them, and since they're flat screens I'm sure they're digitally compatible.

You must be the imbreeds son.

This is actually a nice story. The guy who runs the restaurant is a good dude. It's Right this scum was caught by such fate.

If ever in Toledo, hang out in the Old West End, go to the Art Museum/Glass Pavilion and then to Manos to get some gyros and Opah!

... and then you're pretty much done with Toledo.
