A truly hardened criminal

A pharmacist from Wayland, MA is in a bit of a jam. He's facing charges that he stole Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, other drugs, condoms, lubricants, magazines and other merchandise from the Brooks Pharmacy where he used to work. And this was no impulse theft -- over time, he pocketed about $49,000 worth of stuff.

He's blaming a "mental breakdown" after the dissolution of his marriage, and is facing serious jail time. But I bet he had a hell of a good time for a while there...

When it comes to theft, the rule of thumbis that you have to either steal so little that you won't be noticed ... or steal so much that it's worth going to jail for.

Fifty grand in merchandise over the period of a year doesn't quite qualify as "worth going to jail for."

I'm sure the Criminal Justice system will "rise to the occasion" and punish him accordingly.
