Man Arrested In Niles For Stealing, Selling Chainsaws
NILES, Ill. (CBS) – A north suburban man has been arrested for allegedly stealing and selling chainsaws.Okay, this isn't all that weird. High-end chainsaws are pretty flippin' expensive - like $1K and up - so it's a better ROI (ROS?) than other comparably sized and weighted power tools. What is weird is the method of theft:
WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports 34-year-old Ali Ivanov has been charged with felony theft. Niles police allege he worked with at least one other man and a couple women to lift expensive chainsaws from power tool stores in Michigan and Wisconsin.
Police said, in most cases, the older woman among them would slip an expensive Stihl brand chainsaw between her legs, hidden under a long dress, and then walk out with it.[blink][blink]
Damn, but there really ARE a thousand uses for the Thighmaster™, aren't there?
That is all.
