$51 a night for a sea-side resort, I think they use the word "resort" pretty loosely .

Argyle82: "He also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of theft after he stole a mobile phone, worth £500 ($795), from a bar in nearby Prestatyn."

WTF does a $795 cell phone look like?


High end phones like a Galaxy S3 with the largest storage option retail for upwards of $900. You can often buy them for $100-$200 cheaper than MSRP not too long after they come out and if they're subsidized by a contract it comes down to $200 or so.

Dropped in the toilet, perhaps?

FishyFred: He skipped out on a $150 bill. How much did the DNA test cost?


And don't the cops have better things to be doing?

xl5150: So they found a toothbrush with his DNA in a room. Is that really evidence that he was a hotel guest that stayed there? Hardly. The toothbrush could have belonged to a woman who gave him a BJ in a back alley and then brushed her teeth with it. That toothbrush didn't prove anything (until he confessed, at least).

IANAL, but I have a good one who always smarts off to the cops when I call him and I can picture him saying something like that.


xl5150: Mithiwithi: If I'm ever rightfully accused of a crime, I hope you're on my jury.
If I'm ever the victim of a crime and the cops caught the right guy, I hope you aren't on his jury.

I've never served on a jury. I'm smart enough to get out of it.


I think you're not ALLOWED on a jury.

/Scared of you. And fat.

That's what I'm wondering. I know it's far less than 10-15 years ago, but for a $100 hotel tab? And people act like there is only government waste in the US...


Um, you rocket scientists realize that we're not living on the set of THX-1138, right?

Wow, you win a two-fer today.... Stupidest AND most obscure comment.

TO begin with: Cool, you know what THX-1138 is. We'll all put it in our notes in case we ever get into an Oscure-First-Films-By-Now-Famous-Directors battle with you.

As for "Stupid", your comment makes no sense. If we were "living on the set of THX-1138", then it would be 1971, and DNA testing wouldn't even be a thing yet. If we were living in the world of THX-1138, then your little interjection wouldn't work, since my statement wasn't about some secret gov't database where everyone's DNA was on file to be called up at a moment's notice. My statement was that DNA testing seems pretty expensive to use to chase someone down for a sub-$150 hotel tab, but that, since it wasn't 10-15 years ago, when it really started being a regular police tool, rather than something used mostly in high profile cases, maybe it had come way down in price, and was now worth it even for low cost cases like this. In other words, speculating.

Either way, if you can't be productive to the conversation, maybe you shouldn't even join it, you just make yourself sound like a fool.

I'm thinking that they justified the whole investigation to use as a threat, and warning to would be thieves.

Obviously, even if the DNA tests were free, it's the only way one can justify the massive amount of man hours spent, on such a trivial crime.

You have to admit.
It happened in Wales, yet you yourself, sitting in whatever part of the world you're in right now, heard about it, and may now think twice about committing the same crime.
