Mom finds stolen Xbox 360 in son's room, calls police

In Winneconne, Wisconsin, a teen now faces theft charges after his mother contacted the police about discovering an Xbox 360 and several items in her son's bedroom. A police report states that when the mother asked her 16-year-old son about the discovery, he claimed that one of his friends gave the Xbox 360 to him. The mother then reported the finding to authorities on September 18 after that friend knew nothing about the console or other items, according to the Oshkosh Northwestern. The teen is being held in the Fond du Lac Juvenile Secure Detention Facility for two counts of theft and two counts of criminal trespass to a dwelling.

good job Mom. Now your kid is going to spend the rest of your childhood in jail

Mate, when I was seven years old I tried stealing something from the local supermarket. My mother found out and marched my behind right to the manager of the store, who ripped me a new one, and threatened me with legal action. I learned right then and there that stealing was WRONG.

At 16 years old this kid should know the difference between right and wrong, and if he doesn't (as is obvious by his poor attempt at hiding the fact that he had stolen the game system) then I don't think there's a better way out there then a bit of reality. He steals something, then he faces the legal system.

Trust me, it's a good thing. This mother made the right decision, no doubt about it.

My mom would have done the same.

Any responsible parent would...

Omegasyde4039d ago

but reporting your kid to the cops? That is alittle too far.

Making the kid give it back to the person whom he stole it from would be better.It would cost less in the end as well.

I'm pretty sure the mom caught him stealing before to escalate to calling the police. The kid probably won't be charged with anything anyway, won't even be on his record.

jst what the little cu*t deserves.

Americas justice system is so much better then the Brittish.

If that was in England, that kid wouldnt even of got in trouble, maybe a warning if it was hes first offence.

The mom called the cops on her own kid? Is she retarded?

On second thought, maybe I'm just being dense. A good percentage of American parents are absolute morons. Carry on.

Blasphemy4039d ago

You don't know the whole story. Maybe he was a problem child and it was the only way she knew how to deal with him.

Bigmac5734039d ago

Even so, you don't call the cops on your own child.

eclipsegryph4039d ago

Why would you not call the cops on your own child, Bigmac? Have you ever been in such a situation? We obviously do not know all of the facts. Perhaps she wanted her child to actually see the repercussions of his criminal actions? I don't really see anything wrong with that, personally. If a child thinks he can get away with theft for minimal repercussions, then what is to prevent him from doing so again in the future?

Jesus.. how STUPID amercians are...

Thats what wrong with some of you Americans. You guys are too soft, thats why some of you guys raise harden criminals. Send his punk ass to jail. Good Job Mom.

FF7numba14038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

Bigmac and crazzy. You two need therapy, especially big mac.(joking) The kid is obviously a problem child. You wanna be bad, bad people go to jail. Hes obviously too much for this mother to handle.

satanslilh3lp3r4038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

jesus fu(kin christ, u asswipes act like you're so high and mighty in Europe or wherever you live. there are retarded people everywhere in the world. in America in the UK, in Japan, ect. ect. here in America, we're not all "rednecks" and "ignorant hicks", just like in England you're not all a bunch of tea-sucking crumpit-eating pussies. i find it hilarious that all of the people on this site who insult Americans are the ignorant ones. you think Americans don't know about the rest of the world, when you're the ones who obviously have no idea about anything in America. we don't all love Halo, we DO know that we are not the whole world, and we're certainly not all rednecks. and if you still think that all Americans are retarded, then i'll rip your d!ck of (if you even have one) and shove so far up your ass that you'll be able to taste it (however, you're probably used to the taste anyway since you suck your mom's d!ck every night)

FF7numba14038d ago

Satan you need therapy. First of all I said some. I didn't say all Americans. Second I'm from America(Florida) so I'm just looking at your post like whats your problem? Learn to read properly and learn the definition of the word "some".

LeonSKennedy4Life4039d ago

What if your child kills your wife, mother, father, and friends?

Is he still "your baby"?

MrBIGGLES4039d ago (Edited 4039d ago )

yeah, but he didn't commit murder... how is massacring a family the same as stealing a console you can't afford just to play halo?

The BS Police4039d ago

The thing they have in common is simple... they are both illegal.

Gamer luv4038d ago


then the c*nt should get a friggen job.

when i wanted somethin that cost quite abit my parents told me to get a job.

we wasnt even poor its just they didnt get me what i want when i wanted it, they made me work for shizzle.

the fact he might me poor is even a better reason to get a job so he can help hes mother out aswell as buy an xbox instead of stealing one which could of been the xbox 360 you worked for, why should he jst take it.
