When Fifty-Four Pounds Just Won't DoAn Oklahoma man (Bruce Taylor) was arrested for repeatedly breaking and entering into a home--to steal bras and panties. On five consecutive nights, he broke into the home of Maria Isordia. On the sixth night, though, here's what happened (from TheSmokingGun.com):
Husband Carlos set a trap for Taylor that would have made MacGyver proud. Using only a coffee cup, string, and a bra, Carlos nabbed Taylor (and then beat the intruder silly with a wooden leg taken off his baby's crib).
A coffee cup, string, and a bra. How I wish I could come up with some other activity that would utilize just those three items.
When police searched Taylor's home (he's apparently done this for a while), they found his underwear "stash" in a cooler. It weighed fifty-five pounds.
Ace detective work, really, because the first thing I think of when I see a gigantic, stolen stash of women's underwear is I wonder how much this weighs?
