I mean, yeah, this is worse than stealing jewels:
Shelbyville [Tennessee] Police are investigating the most expensive shoplifting case in recent memory with more than $11,000 worth of ink cartridges stolen.
Police say a man and woman stole $11,427 worth of ink cartridges from the Walmart in Shelbyville on Sunday.
How many cartridges were swiped? Not so many:
Police say they placed 332 ink cartridges in a stolen tote bag in their shopping cart and rolled right through the garden center emergency exit without the alarm going off.
So: $34.42 per cartridge. No wonder these suckers are being stolen.
