Serial thief, 86, nabbed in Genoa

Specialises in robbing from cars

(ANSA) - Genoa, May 31 - Police on Tuesday stopped an 86-year-old man after video footage showed him breaking into and stealing from two cars in Genoa's Pegli district.
    The serial thief, who has been in and out of prison throughout his adult life, reportedly told police that he "didn't know how to do anything else".
    "I steal a few objects in cars and then I fence them, it used to be car stereos and audio cassettes, now they are CDs and battery chargers, I'm not hurting anyone, really," he said.
    "And then, at my age, they don't put you in jail any more".
