Dumb Criminal of the Day
I think we've found our first TRULY idiotic criminals of 2007 right here.
--So, congratulations, 46-year-old Kurt Husfeldt, his 13-year-old son whose name wasn't released, and 20-year-old Steven Mangiapanella, all of Lindenhurst, New York (--on Long Island). . . because we're talkin' about YOU.
--Last week, the 13-year-old boy and Steven snuck into the Public Works department of Babylon, New York (--the next city west on Long Island), and stole 14 GPS devices. Their plan was to resell them and make a few grand.
--But. . . they forgot to TURN THEM OFF. . . so, as soon as the town figured out their GPS devices were missing, they fired up the GPS system on THEIR end. . . which is hooked up to those devices. . . and showed EXACTLY where they were.
--The cops busted into Kurt's house, where they found him with one of the GPS devices in his hands.
--He was charged with criminal possession of stolen property; his son and Steven were both charged with grand larceny.
