Teen Caught Stealing To Pay For Legal Bills
April 28, 2009
Jason Markham, a 19-year-old Beloit native, was arrested after a man found him hiding in his car. He was caught in possession of a number of stolen items from other cars, such as CD’s and video games, as well as a GPS.
When asked what he was doing, he admitted that he was stealing from nearby cars, but only did so to cover the mounting lawyer feed and court costs that he was having to pay, after being charged with drug possession earlier this year.
He has been arrested for burglary.
