What's the last thing you stole? [Jun. 13th, 2007|07:23 am]

Butts Charged With Stealing Toilet Paper
MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (June 11) - Police blame a woman named Butts for stealing toilet paper from a central Iowa courthouse, and while they're chuckling, the theft charge could put her in prison.

"She's facing potentially three years of incarceration for three rolls of toilet paper," Chief Lon Walker said, stifling a laugh as he talked to KCCI-TV about Suzanne Marie Butts. "See, I can't say it with a straight face."

Workers had noticed the rolls disappearing from the Marshall County Courthouse much faster than usual, Walker said.

Butts, 38, was caught last week after an employee saw her taking three rolls of two-ply tissue from a storage closet, Walker said.

Butts insisted it was the first time she'd pilfered toilet paper, but she declined to answer further questions on her attorney's advice.

The fifth-degree theft charge, a misdemeanor, normally carries a sentence of less than a year in jail. But Butts could face more time if convicted under the state's habitual offender law because she has prior theft convictions.

Walker did not know why Butts was at the courthouse, but said that she did not work there.


And Rome meets The Simpsons. I highly recommend. :)

I don't remember what the last thing i stole was... :-\ I don't steal from people (or stores... anymore), but i did once and that was probably the last time.. I stole a DVD from a semi-friend 'cause i was pissed that she sold two of my DVD boxed sets for coke. I told her later that i had it and she told me to keep it, so i'm not sure if that counts.

*grumbles about people selling her stuff*

stores anymore? lol. What did you used to steal? I stole from a major retail chain once when I was like 12. I had to go to a shoplifters prevention class. I stole a lipgloss, a necklance and a pack of gum. HAHAHA.

I haaaate when friends still things.

One of my friends "Borrowed" my Deadwood season one about a yearand a half two years ago and has promised to mail it back to me probalby a dozen times since then because she lives a few hundred miles away in another state.

She's now discontinued her phone.
