We all love hearing about stupid criminals. And you can't get any dumber than this family!
Matthew Eaton and his wife, Laura, must have thought they were some smart thieves. In fact, they even went on the Dr. Phil show last November to brag about it!!!!!!!
The Eatons, from San Marcos, California, went on national television to brag about making over $100,000 by shoplifting and then selling the shit on eBay.
Well, the imbecilic family is now under investigation by federal agents.
Oh, and on the show they even included a video showing them and their three young children on a three-day shoplifting excursion.
They told Dr. Phil how in just one week they made $3,500 just from selling stolen toys, adding that the thefts were "easy money."
And according to the show, they've been stealing for about six years now.
The couple finally got caught last week by the Secret Service and members of the San Diego Regional Fraud Task Force who searched their home and seized several of their belongings.
As of yet, the Eatons haven't been arrested or charged, but they have hired an attorney to represent them. Unfortunately their attorney from the United Defense Group in Los Angeles has decided not to comment on the case.
