Homeless Man Pinched in $ 699 Mother's Day Card Theft
He'd already been arrested 92 times. What's one more?

NEW YORK CITY - Oswald Jones - arrested 92 times, convicted of 13 felonies - loves his mama. So what if he's led a life of crime? And being on the wrong side of the law has not exactly made the homeless man rich, either.

That's why Jones, 56 picked up a $ 699 Mother's Day card on the five-finger discount planand tried to beat feet from a New York City newsstand on Saturday, according to police, but the owner caught him and took back the card.

Jones had a few other items in his possession, reports the New York Post, which led to petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property charges.

Port Authority police saw Jones and the stand owner arguingand made the arrest, reports WPIX.com.

And that's an unhappy Mother's Day if ever there was.
