Pay Box Thief Caught
A West Side man told police he stole and then busted open four 200-pound pay-and-display parking meters from city streets so he could support his drug habit, authorities said.
“I dropped my crack pipe,” Jeffery Kaput, 38, said when he was pulled over late Monday in the 5500 block of West Augusta, a police report alleged.
Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. ordered Kaput held in lieu of $200,000 bail Wednesday on four counts of felony theft. Kaput, of the 5500 block of West Cortez, was also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
