Florida Man Steals $1.12 Spoon To Captain Crunch
A Florida man was arrested for stealing a spoon from a Walmart told cops that he stoke the utensil because he “needed one to eat his Captain Crunch with.”
Via The Smoking Gun:
Gregg Lerner, 46, was collared around 11 PM Thursday after walking out of a Walmart in St. Petersburg without paying for the $1.12 metal spoon. Lerner was stopped by store security and detained until a cop arrived at the business.
According to Officer Michael Romano, Lerner, pictured below, “advised that he did steal the spoon, for he needed one to eat his Captain Crunch with.” Lerner was not in possession of any narcotics or drug paraphernalia when taken into custody.
Since Lerner’s rap sheet includes two prior convictions for theft, he was charged with a felony for the alleged spoon heist.
Lerner, a convicted felon who has done several stretches in state prison, is locked up in the county jail on $2000 bond.
