That's what I do. Since a print cartridge usualy lasts me about a year (I use work for most of my printing needs!) I just pick up a loss leader HP or Brother on a black friday sale, and then sell the old printer sans ink for 25 bucks on craigslist. This process has worked quite well over the past few years.
 
2013-05-22 02:25:53 PM  
For those of you still wondering why they stole a printer:

Inkjet and Laser printer have  compounds known as nitropyrenes and trinitrofluorene and although they are rarely used these days, they have hallucinogenic properties

This is a huge problem in middle-upper class teenagers in Mexico. To buy toner in Mexico you have to show your IFE card (voting registration card with picture)

Ask any mexican acquaintance and they will probably get emotional as they are very likely to have a family member affected by toner addiction

Yeah but many new printers now come with "starter" ink cartridges that hold just enough to print out the test page and a little more. They caught on.

They should have just let them flee. They would have come back anyway after couple days to steal some cartridges. And then they could charge them with something more valuable. Charge for a $37 printer will not go far, but $370 cartridge will.

Came here to say this. Maybe he drives an unmarked car and takes it home with him? Otherwise, now his need to always be prepared for everything has been confirmed in the biggest way possible. Any time anyone (or that voice in his head) says "do you really need that?" his response is going to be "fark yeah! This'll make me a hero someday again"!

Why not? I really don't know what I'm talking about, but it seems plausible to me that cops don't remove every piece of cop equipment from their cars at the end of a shift. He could have been heading home after a shift and just been in the right place at the right time.

Lots of small towns have "on call" cops.  Saves them time when the cruiser is already at home then getting into your private vehicle, then driving to the police station to get your cruiser, then going to the scene of the crime.

Why do she not get the same drug charges? She wasn't driving, so you can make a case of her not getting aggravated assault, but she should get the same damn charges for everything else.

oh_please: Tumunga: Donnchadha: what_now: SlothB77: You can get a printer for $37 now?

yeah but replacement toner is $175

Which is why when you run out of ink, it's cheaper to buy a new printer than buy a new ink cartridge

Because they figure people are lazy, and rather pay extra to open little toner boxes than to open big printer boxes.

INK IS NOT TONER!!!!! THEY ARE TWO FARKING DIFFERENT THINGS!!!!!! ARRGH

Noticeably F.A.T.: Why the hell is an off duty (heh, duty) cop cruising around with spike strips?


Employees must pay a $50 monthly surcharge to take home city vehicles if they live in Slidell. Employees living outside the city limits must pay $100 each month.

that article is about the city council perhaps revising the policy. i'd pay $50 or $100 bucks in lieu of a car payment and insurance. actually i had a company car once and it's a nice perk.

Tumunga: That's like saying mud's not dirt, or ice cream doesn't have bones.


No, it's not. They're two completely different things, especially in terms of cost. Ink goes in inkjets. Toner goes in lasers.

Get a B/W laser printer for less than $100, the starter cartridge will last the average person a year or more. You can buy a remanufactured full cartridge online for around $30, which will give you 2000-4000 pages. The average $20 ink cartridge will give you around 200 pages. Plus, toner doesn't dry out.

saw the WWL and thought well shiat, my area. saw the town -- crap, poor way to make the news. ever since katrina this area has been going down hill. we had crappy people and drugs and all that goes with that but not to this scale.

If they sold a little of the weed they could have bought the printer.
 
2013-05-22 04:45:54 PM  
Should've stolen the printer ink instead - Costs 3 times more than the printer?! What a world.

I did that at the grocery store, except it was a case of Coke Zero in the bottom of the cart that I'd honestly forgotten to tell the cashier about.

/got all the way to parking lot with it, scot-free, and remember thinking "Damn, I wish that were a case of beer!"

Cold_Sassy: Jument: A few months ago found a vendor selling ink cartridges for my Canon inkjet for $2 a cartridge. I shiat you not. The printer is getting pretty old so I figured it would give them a try and if they farked up the printer I'd just buy a new one. Amazingly, they actually work great. I've printed a few photos and they look as good as with the old ones and no problems so far. I'm farking gobsmacked.

Re TFA: yeah, you know you're irreversibly farked when you risk prison and death for $37.

Is that vendor local?  If available online, I'd be pleased to have that information ;)


Right off Amazon! Search for "eForCity 4 iNK CARTRIDGES". It was $8 for a pack of 4 color cartridges for my printer. I guess if your color use isn't balanced that isn't ideal. Also the large black isn't included. Still it's a screaming deal.

12349876: justanotherfarkinfarker: Why wouldn't you steal a good printer? I mean if you are gonna steal why not go big.

my only guess

bigger = harder to carry


Yup.  An el-cheapo printer would be a lot easier to steal.  I've got a decent color laser all-in-one here--it's big enough that I had to take it out of the box to get it home.

Tumunga: That's like saying mud's not dirt, or ice cream doesn't have bones.


While the purpose is the same the technologies are very different.  One very important aspect is that toner is a *POWDER*--there's no issue of drying out.  When you buy a laser cartridge that's good for say 2000 pages you can expect to actually get 2000 pages out of it whether you print them all out that day or print a page a day for years.

No no no. Steal the ink cartridges to sell. See relevant comments above.

These two simply illustrate my point about "too stupid to feed to your dog."

I'm thinking that the meth they tossed was worth more than the printer.

Too bad they didn't have a decent printer, they could have printed a coupon for the printer.

You have to wonder about the intelligence of the police involved.  I don't like letting bad guys get away but is $37 worth a high speed chase which probably endangered the lives of 100s of drivers?

SlothB77: You can get a printer for $37 now?


The HP Deskjet 1000 goes for $35.00, and works just fine for printing out term papers and online coupons, or tickets.  I picked one up because it was literally cheaper than buying ink cartridges for my old printer.

Heck, you can almost get a laser printer for $37. Fry's (the CA electronics store, not the AZ grocery store) occasionally has them on sale for $49-$59.

ButtercupKitteh: cops get to take home their guns -and- randomly spike strips now? well then.


I'm pretty sure most cops take their guns home every day.

Spike strips, only if they're in the cruiser, I'd imagine.  And ditto for anything bigger than their handguns.
