Crime Doesn't Always Pay

When two Phoenix police officers entered an abandoned house that was being foreclosed on, they thought they had hit the jackpot when they found several vintage baseball cards glued to a door (yes, glued to the door!). The younger officer was fired, but was re-instated with a suspension. The older officer quickly retired before any disciplinary action could be taken. The cards included several hall of famers including Willie Mays, Ernie Banks and Don Drysdale, but due to the poor condition of the cards, the estimated value of all 44 cards was (drum roll please)...$15.00.

The mind boggles when I think of the stupidity of some people.
