It's also true, as this woman has found out. Ouch. Five months in the pokey and three years supervised release. And for what? A few movies, most of which probably sucked anyway.
"postal inspectors followed Durante from the post office to a nearby gas station, where she threw away empty DVD envelopes. A search of her home found stolen DVDs worth $20,937, according to court records."
And I just don't understand the motivation behind stealing netflix and blockbuster envelopes. Those things are such a pain in the butt, who would want to handle them one more time?
