This dude has always been an idiot but he’s at least an entertaining and bold idiot. Personally I think it’s awesome that the Disney park community has had so much drama happen cause of this guy. I have to say I have respect for people who actively try to shake things up.

The most interesting thing about this (besides them finally arresting the guy) is that apparently there were other animatronics stolen besides Buzzy? I heard rumors about the dancers in the first scene of GMR being stolen, but those I'm not sure qualify as animatronics.

Also, those Haunted Mansion theft must have been on replacement props, right? We would have known long ago if suddenly the dancers were naked one morning.

Can you post this over in the stroller thread too? Or is the dumpster too small for that thread.
Too small. There was an article today about how a nuclear waste storage pit in one of the atolls we blasted the crap out of is leaking. That might be big enough for that thread. Might be. And it's pretty massive too.
Mentioned leaking atoll for reference: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/enewetak-atoll-dome-un-antonio-guterres-concerns-marshall-islands-structure-leaking-radioactive-material-pacific/
Fitting, no?
Really is. I saw the news earlier and decided I wasn't going to be the one that starts this thread.

Everything about him gave off the "come get me" vibe, like he wanted to be caught for his antics. I guess folks really really really really enjoy attention.
I think he legitimately thought he was steps ahead of the police... hence his bold modifications of things and spin doctoring after he got his first scare. He apparently didn't grasp that the investigation could still be ongoing and the police aren't always going to tip their hat on everything they have on you.

His lawyer is going to have to try to fight to supress the evidence... or quickly work out a plea deal. He's toast.
