Fugitive Caught With Hand in Video Game Bin

A wanted fugitive in Lee County, Florida, was having problems supporting his drug habit. So he hit his local Wal-Mart and tried to leave the store with a bunch of Nintendo DS games that he hoped to sell for some heroin, according to a news report.

A News-Press story said  Daniel Larson, 32, tried to leave the Cape Coral store with about $120 in games stuffed in his pants and shoes. He pushed a loss prevention officer who confronted him, but was subdued. The little shopping jaunt brought charges of violating pretrial supervision, larceny, resisting a property recovery retail merchant, using a false identification that adversely affects others, forgery of a public record certificate and violating parole.

Apparently the theft was one of his milder crimes, as his rap sheet included armed robbery and kidnapping. He had gotten out of an arrest on Sept. 5 using a fake ID.

The story goes into a few details on Lee County’s booking procedures and Wilma Flintstone is mentioned. Gotta love some of today’s legal procedures.

    That would be stealing, however if you were to rob a ship full of games, that would be both.


    Debates are like merry go rounds. Two people take their positions then they go through the same points over and over and over again. Then when it’s over they have the same positions they started in.

    I LIKE the fence. I get 2 groups to laugh at then.

    Only idiots steal shitty bargain bin games that normal people aren’t crazy enough to buy.

    When Jack Thompson runs his mouth, does anyone really care what he has to say anymore?
