Here's one I never heard before. Three teenagers are spotted walking down a street at 4 o'clock in the morning in Bayonne. A resident spotted them, and it probably wasn't hard to spot since they were carrying a parking meter. Yes, the kind on the pole cemented into the sidewalk. When police caught up with them they admitted to lifting the parking meter out of the ground and walking away with it.

Uh...how? Wouldn't you have to be a body builder on steroids and speed to get one of those suckers loose? Somehow they did it, and now two of the three are arrested (the third was under 18 and not charged). The value of the parking meter with its contents was $525. With that determination I almost want to say they earned it.
