Just read about this guy today, really interesting story.
And there is also a pic with a scrawny slut rolling around in 100 dollar bills.

Wow!

He got 164 years in prison, which got lowered to 8 because he cooperated, but he only ended up serving 2 before he was let out into probation? :wow:


#3

You can be a criminal kids, but you have to be a thief and the best fucking thief there is. Game recognizes game son!


#4

Yea that is pretty damn crazy. Though he had to sell 4 of his condos and give the Canadian government $500,000, I think he came out fine. Since he’s exposed he can get a security job, since he’s damn good at getting around them.


#5

Don’t let that guy near any of Terry Benedict’s casinos.


#6

IMO he is smart as hell for locking the doors.

Silly cops, he is too good.


#7

Read this in Wired the other day, really interesting. It never mentioned what got him started in Nebraska though, anyone know?


#8

Not gonna lie, I clicked for the slut.

I was pretty disappointed. :frowning:

Guess i’m going to actually read the article now.


#9

I would easily sell some condos and give $500,000 in order to get my sentence reduced from 2 lifetimes to less than a decade. Deal of the millennium IMO.

Plus, he didn’t snitch people out, so he stuck to the code of the skreets. :cool:


#10

Gdlk footsies.


#11

someone should buy movie rights to this


#12

Wired has these amazing ‘true story’ articles all the time, and some have gone on to be picked up to become movies.

Don’t know of any that actually have though :frowning:


#13

I think they have a show about this on USA called White Collar or something… I think this sounds better… like that one Leonardo D. movie, but way better!


#14

Same thing happened to the Catch Me if You Can guy only he had to spend a year in French prisons, which are basically dungeons designed to kill you slowly.
