Suspect Nabbed in Cinci store thefts

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.
