76 Year Old Woman Arrested for the 73rd Time
October 22, 2008
FoxNews is reporting that a 76 year old New York woman has just been arrested for a 73rd time. According to the story, “A criminal complaint filed earlier in this case charged Kelly with grand larceny and attempted grand larceny. It said she took a wallet, left by police as bait, from a shopping cart in a supermarket a few blocks north of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on Oct. 15. It said an officer recovered the wallet from Kelly’s ‘bra area.'”
I’m thinking that this woman might want to switch to a new line of work. She clearly hasn’t been a very good crook. The story also says that she has used 36 aliases since she began her life of not-so-lucrative crime. Can you imagine what the background check would look like on this? The paper used alone could rival that of Homer’s The Odyssey. How about the cost for checking criminal records for a woman with 36 names? Can you say “National Deficit”? That would be one expensive and time consuming background check. Yikes!
