Ok lady - I'll give you $50. I'll have my undercover police officer give you the money at the time and place of your choosing.

50 bucks is enough for a couple of rocks. You can't get that for $20.

One of the perps is white, and one is black. But it's clearly the fault of the black guy.

FTFA: The man told her the phone was his and was stolen from his vehicle yesterday afternoon. Johnson told him she wanted money for the phone's return. The man offered $20, but Johnson hung up. Later, Johnson called back and told him if he'd pay her $50 she'd return the phone.

Johnson denied knowing anything about the phone being stolen and denied trying to extort money


/seems legit?

Both were charged with felony dealing in stolen property and have an Aug. 7 court date.

A felony does not mean shiat anymore. The more cops and DA's overuse the law the less it is respected.

/I know, fodder for the plea bargain.

The phone is worth more than the minimum $350 value for a felony. Pretty simple.

Same thing happened to a buddy of mine in the days before iPhones. No cops were involved though. His phone was taken out of his golf cart by someone working on a house on the course. He met with the guy, took his phone back with some added violence, and cops were never involved.

I get the legal limits of the law, and appreciate the information.

If I went to some random person on the street and asked what is a felony? Rape, murder, robbery, embezzlement, ect. I don't think it would be a stolen $350 dollar phone, assuming it could be sold for that.

Are felony amounts being adjusted for inflation, because I think the police state wants anyone not acting orderly or working in jail.

A few years back when I was working at Radio Shack, a guy came in with a Sprint display fake phone. Said he'd paid 50 bucks for ir, and wondered if we could activate it for him. I had to explain that he had paid 50 bucks for a phony phone. I almost could keep from laughing in his face.

It is complicated as all hell. Some places; $1000 shoplifting is a felony, while dealing in stolen merchandise over the value of $350 is a felony. Even specific charges change from misdemeanor to felony, depending on the situation. For example: misidentifing yourself to a police officer after committing a misdemeanor is an additional misdemeanor; while misidentifing yourself to a police officer after committing a felony is an additional felony. This is all subject to the specific rules in each municipality/state/county in perpetuity, non-amalgamated ect ect.

You do know that cops and DA's don't get to pick whether or not this is a felony, right? The circumstances of the charges make it a felony.

My day job is in the electronics department of a retail department store chain. I'm always amazed by people who try to steal the mock-ups and fakes. We even get people who steal the empty boxes for the display items which we keep locked up (the items, not their boxes).

Mostly, though, I find it weird that people will tear open a package and steal a two-dollar adapter or something like that. Jeez. It's two bucks. You could probably scrape up that much change under the Taco Bell drive thru window.

Our store got broken into a while back. The criminals stole a couple $80 point-and-shoot cameras, a PS3, and a handful of nearly-worthless cubic zirconia jewelry... When there were $500 HDTVs and $600 high-end cameras in the same areas, unsecured. They ended up costing us more in repairs to the glass cases they smashed than in merchandise loss.

Criminals are, by their very nature, dumb.

When my wife was working at Safeway, they busted a guy for stealing two donuts. He had like 150 bucks in his wallet at the time. His general attitude was "The donuts only cost a dollar so it's okay if I just take them. It's not worth my time to wait in line and give money to the cashier."

Same thing happened to a friend of mine. When they "agreed" upon a price, he went to meet the person to bring the money (which we all told him was a bad idea) but he actually did get his phone back.

Minus the computer chip that actually made the phone work.

The Photobucket app on my android backs up all video and photos I take and uploads them to my password protected album of my Photobucket account. I'm sure there are various other backup apps that do the same.

Worked at Radiohell in the 90's. Our front plate glass window was busted in and the only thing stolen was the display of dummy phones.
