#BLANKSTARENEWS Man Steals A Chainsaw By Sticking It Down His Pants
Florida is the home of the STUPID criminal. This is a crime that no rational minded man who respects his self would ever commit. This man steals a chainsaw by putting it in his pants and walking out of the store. According to Off The Beat, here is how it all went down.
The accused chainsaw crook came in Treasure Coast Lawn Equipment in the 1800 block of Southwest Bayshore Boulevard and reportedly asked for $1 worth of change, according to a police report.
He picked up a Stihl chainsaw valued at more than $600 and left, riding away on a bicycle.
Surveillance video shows him calmly stuff the saw down his shorts and cover it with his shirt.
The saw does not appear to be running at the time.
Employees chased the man, later identified as 28-year-old Anthony Ballard. Ballard ultimately ditched the saw in a wooded lot along Southwest Molloy Street before he got away. The saw was recovered, and police searched the area but couldn’t find Ballard. Ballard, listed as homeless, was arrested on a grand theft charge.
This seems to dangerous for me.... This could have left this man's member decapitated and is that really worth selling a stolen chain saw. This man needs some drug counseling because only someone under the influence of something would commit a crime this stupid and dangerous.
