dennysgod: $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?
FishyFred: He skipped out on a $150 bill. How much did the DNA test cost?
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 coontil 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.
Mikey1969: FishyFred: He skipped out on a $150 bill. How much did the DNA test cost?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...

TommyymmoT: 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 crimeleaving your toothbrush behind.
