Guard arrested for stealing Lakers rings

A security guard was arrested this week and is accused of stealing two Los Angeles Lakers championship rings and $20,000 in gift cards, police said.

Eddie Monterroso, 23, who worked at a Lakers training facility, was arrested Tuesday outside the facility, the El Segundo Police Department said.

The two championship rings were from the 2009 and 2010 seasons, police said.

    He is just 23 – young people make mistakes.

    Now what did he think he was going to do with those championship rings? Pawn them?

      My neighbor's expensive smart phone and electronic cigarette was stolen yesterday. When he started complaining to me I explained to him that it was really just "redistribution of wealth" and the only difference between what happened to him and socialism was that he didn't have a gun pointed at his head.

      ....and that doesn't address my post at all. Surprising, really. I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked.

      That's what your simple mind can't understand, it directly addresses your post, this article and your political affiliation.
