In college I would stop at the textbook store several times per week and I would steal one of the more expensive class textbooks. Eventually I had a closet full of books. I gave a group of my unscrupulous friends a 25% cut to stand in line several times and sell them back to the store at the end of each semester. I made thousands of dollars, financed a lavish lifestyle for an unemployed student, financed a pricey weekend getaway to Chicago, and returned home for the summer with $1500 cash. If caught, I could have been charged with a felony due to the value of the theft.
