Repeat Offender

Humorous story out of Pittsburgh:
  • A Pittsburgh man has been arrested for breaking into the same liquor store five times in the past three weeks, authorities said on Friday.

    Stephen Lamm, 40, who is homeless, was arrested after breaking into Pa Wine and Spirits Store in downtown Pittsburgh and stealing two bottles of vodka early Thursday, according to a criminal complaint filed by police.

    Lamm allegedly smashed a window at the same store and stole about 12 bottles of alcohol on January 28. The following day, he broke through wood covering the broken window, although it was unclear whether anything was taken.

    Police say that the next day Lamm smashed a display window at the store and stole seven bottles of alcohol. Two days later, he smashed a window, stealing about four bottles, according to the complaint.

    After Thursday's break-in, police identified Lamm from a surveillance video and arrested him on a charge of burglary. During the arrest, two bottles of alcohol fell out of his coat, the complaint said.
After the second or third time, you'd think someone would wait in the parking lot for this guy.

Anyone who gets himself "12 bottles of alcohol" one day, and comes back the very next day, has probably got a problem with the stuff. Huh?

You can drink like this until your esophageal varices burst -- at which point you hunch up on the sidewalk, disgorge all ten pints of your blood in one long, convulsive heave, and then never move again.

Flies come.

This one's 40? I knew one who lasted until 48 -- and that was an outside bet.

Big secret here -- you don't have to do that anymore if you don't want to. AA. Works if ya work it. Enough said.

Pittsburgh likely has their own version of Anita Alvarez so he most likely will be out again real soon.

Even the Crystal Ball Unit would have been able to predict this crime by the fifth try.

By my calculations if they had just let him keep the 12 bottles the first time he broke in, he'd still be passed out and they'd be four windows ahead of the game.

After the 2nd offense, you'd think the owner would have waited INSIDE of the store for this goof, and put an end to that bullshit. And not to bash our brothers in blue, but you'd think the Pittsburgh cops patrolling that area would have paid the area a little more special attention...I'm just sayin'. Five incidents of blatant
lawbreaking at the same location is about 3 times too
many in my book.
