Two teenage boys (18 & 19) from Pittston are in a heap of trouble today after stealing………..
wait for it……………….
a parking meter (WTF) on Thursday night at around 6:30 pm (when it was still light out, duh).
took lugged the parking meter to an apartment (evidently someone noticed this and called the police) and were going to smash it open for the coins inside. Because there is probably a million dollars in a parking meter in Pittston, right?
These two chuckleheads were arraigned today and charged with criminal conspiracy to commit theft, criminal attempt to commit theft, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. The older boy was also charged with theft.
I think the gene pool dried up before they dove in.
