An economically challenged couple in eastern Pennsylvania went all Jean Valjean on dozens of big box retailers, stealing toys to sell on eBay. They took h3r teenage son with them, because hey–kids love toys, right?
Theresa Lynn Warner, her fiance Christopher Dimaio and her 17-year-old son packed the van from floor to ceiling — stuffing some items into door panels — with baseball cards, Barbie dolls, Batmobiles, Star Wars figurines and more as they checked 91 stores off their list, police said.
Police opened the van yesterday in a fire hall bay, spilling a Texas Tornado wrestling action figure and a Monster High doll onto the floor. The culprits lashed cardboard to the van’s inside walls to hold in place the toys stacked to the ceiling. They left a small area with a pillow on the floor behind the front seats.
An X-Men poster taped to the back window hid the stacks and plastic bins full of toys from view.
While these grossly obese, pasty white, van dwelling Bonnie and Clyde play into every horrible stereotype of adult people who collect/sell action figures and toys, please do not judge us all by their example. Most of us are normal, severely myopic, IT managers that spend our evenings streaming Star Blazers on Netflix.
