The bonehead who smashed windows of two sports card and memorabilia outlets in Cincinnati earlier in the week may have been the same guy who tried it at a golf course pro shop. This time the cops were waiting.
Cincinnati police think 21 year-old Brian Smith may be involved in connection with incidents at a pair of sports memorabilia shops in the Cincinnati area.
Baseball and football cards are missing from the Baseball Card Corner store owned by long-time collector/dealer Tom Pfirman. Police arrested Smith as he handled a golf club and tried to break into a local golf course's pro shop. No word on whether he tried to convince the cops he was just mad about grabbing a 1990 Donruss Juan Gonzalez instead of the 1961 Juan Marichal sitting next to it.
Here's the original story the day of the break-ins from WCPO TV.
