(Source) Fifteen years in the slammer and he apparently still has no sole. A little more than 24 hours after a New Jersey man was freed from prison for robbing a shoe store he returned to the same store and committed the same act again, according to police. Christopher M. Miller was arrested Saturday after allegedly reenacting the same crime he committed at the Stride Rite store in Toms River in 1999.
Police say the 40-year-old took a bus from Atlantic City to the store — approximately 50 miles away — where he ordered its two employees to empty the register and hand over their cell phones. After grabbing $389 from the register he allegedly ordered them to the back of the store which, unlike the first time they were robbed, they refused. In that 1999 incident the employees were tied up.
Miller took off on foot with the cash and three phones before police spotted him a few blocks away. Police said the stolen money was found hidden in a gutter downspout and the employees’ cell phones in a garbage can with the help of a K9. He was charged with robbery and held at the Ocean County jail on $100,000 bail.
What’s the old saying? If you do what you love you’ll never work a day in your life? Well Christopher Miller LOVES robbing shoe stores. Loves it. Spent 15 years in prison just waiting for the day where he could get back out there and start robbing shoe stores again. That’s dedication on a whole different level. I love nothing that much. I, like most people in my generation are jaded assholes. Nothing can impress me, nothing is great, nothing is worth more than 10 seconds of my time. But Christopher Miller, that’s an old school guy right there, he found his niche and he’s going to hammer it for all it’s worth. Guy just loves stolen shoes and I respect that.*
*Just kidding, he obviously just wanted to go back to jail because he missed his boyfriend or something.
