He also was charged with possession of burglary tools because he was carrying a pair of pruning shears in his pocket.

Okay...I'm not a law enforcement professional, but can somebody please explain to me how pruning shears are burglary tools?

I didn't even know there was such a charge. So are lock picking tools illegal?

they're used as wire cutters and prying tools with the belief that they'll be in less trouble than if they were caught with wire-cutters.

/they being the crooks.

depends. a lot of it is based on "intent". and that is at the perception of the police.

I used to work facility maintenance and construction and it was not unusual to have my vehicle filled with tools that could be construed as burglary tools.

pry bars, bolt cutters, sawzall, angle grinders, hammers... hell even the simple screwdriver is multi-purpose for burglary. and yes, I did have a small lock pick case that was kept in a tool bag and wasn't taped to my inner thigh.

and on occasion I would get stopped at a road side safety check (especially on the weekends, or a Holiday weekend, and the officer would lean in and comment, "you work construction, huh?". and my license and insurance would be clean and he would just hand them back and send me on my way.

now I know some sketchy guys who wouldn't get the same treatment, and this one guy was driving on a suspended license and they confiscated all of his tools and initially processed it as possession of burglary tools.

and he had a ramset hammer and fasteners and a variety of different chemicals like, muriatic acid and they tried to get him on explosives charges, but all of that was eventually dropped, but they'll get you on any and everything up front knowing that some charges will be dismissed.

so like your dad should've taught you while you were a teen, "if you're going to drive around with a baseball bat in the car, make sure you also have a ball and glove with you"

and also, stay out of trouble.

No, but tell that to the judge, not to the cop. I keep a toolbox in my car from when I was a ship's engineer, it's saved someone's ass two or three times, and you can take my tools from my cold dead hands.

He probably left marks on the car with them.
