The kid needs to spend a few days in the slammer to get his priorities straight. Do teens no longer work part-time anymore or do chores to save up money? No guilt, no shame, I hope these kids are not the future.

He had 9000 and all he bought was a Wii? I'm not an advocate of theft but if you're going to steal money, at least spend it on something worth the efforts of your theft. lol.

Good one and agreed.

Seriously, who would need $9000 for Wii? The console and all it's games to date cost less than $9000. Wish he had bought PS3 and 360 at least...

Why on Earth would someone have $9000 dollars in a damn pillowcase?

Hey Grandma this is the 21st century, there is something called a BANK ya know!

lol my great grandma used to keep all of her money in her refrigerator.
She didn't trust the banks after the depression lol.
anyways, If i stole $9000 i would skip the wii and get a ps3+ giant HD TV and some booze.

My great-grandparents never put their money in the bank. After they died we found $1200 in my great-granddad's wallet, $3500 in an icing container in the fridge, and $24000 in a box hid in their bedroom.
