William Kelt­ner was shop­ping for a new TV when he stum­bled across a set for a hair over 200 bucks, which actu­ally sounds like a decent deal. Kelt­ner decided to remove the price code from a clothes hanger, which was sell­ing for about a buck and a quar­ter, and place it on the set before tak­ing it to the self-service check­out counter. Kelt­ner was arrested and charged with third-degree felony tam­per­ing with evi­dence, and felony theft.

Keith Hinds hopped into a Chi­nese restau­rants deliv­ery vehi­cle after the deliv­ery man left it idling at curb­side. Hinds sped off, then began tak­ing the remain­ing orders to the listed addresses in an attempt to rack up a few extra bucks – much to the sur­prise of the restau­rant owner, who had called the patrons to inform them that their meals had been stolen. Cops caught up with Hinds fairly quickly and charged him with auto theft as well as drug possession

An Ohio man whose name was not released, aroused the sus­pi­cion of an employee at an adult book store by hang­ing around near the shop’s back door look­ing sus­pi­cious – although he later insisted he was just com­par­ing prices on a few items. When cops swung by to ques­tion him about the lurk­ing, he took off on his bicy­cle, but crashed it into a fire hydrant and wiped out! The police found drugs in his jean pock­ets.  He was charged with drug pos­ses­sion and issued a bench warrant.
