Shane Carlson, 26, has a long record of burglaries and office break-ins, but police say that he has recently turned to a more specialized form of theft: teeth. Perhaps responding to Glenn Beck’s continual hawking of gold as an investment, Carlson has been allegedly stealing teeth and filings for the gold from dental offices. He was captured with a bag of teeth in Seattle.
When Carlson was stopped, he allegedly had a variety of driver’s licenses on him.
Beck is right about one thing: gold is a real hedge against the recession, at least for burglars. In one heist alone, Carlson is believed to have stolen $10,000 worth of gold. At $1,000 per ounce, it is an excellent way for a criminal to diversify his holdings.
Carlson has a slew of outstanding warrants and, as a repeat offender, he is unlikely to go gold prospecting again any time soon. The police are planning to take a bite out of crime by hitting him with a long list of criminal charges.

Let’s hope he got them from breaking into a dentist’s office…
They all are.
“He was captured with a bag of teeth in Seattle.”
Then someone is ‘Teethless in Seattle’
The Nitro could be fun.
Truly seeking base metals.
It should really be panning for the gold. Or Police take a Bite out of Crime. or Flossing for Gold.
Don’t you get extra time for breaking into a dentists office?
