    Just want to clarify again... this is NOT ME! I can't tell you how many people cornered me on this over the weekend. It is somewhat embarassing to keep seeing this story.

    Here's a more thorough story in the Times Union... http://timesunion.com/AspStories/sto...date=9/30/2006

    The other guy has a different middle initial, and is apparently now in the Albany County Jail without bail.

    Pretty dumb... and now he's on the hook for $70K worth of theft, and it sounds like he only pocketed about $10K from the whole thing. I'm guessing he's going to be facing some big time for this one.

    Yep, the other guys could always claim that Collins told them they were surplus, not stolen.

    Of course they are going ot claim that....especially since it already looks like he's the bad guy there....I can't really see them jumping up and down saying, "He didn't do it!!! Blame me!!! I did it, I'm guilty!" lol
