BND report that 37 year old thief Gerry Armbruster pleaded guilty on Tuesday to stealing the massive Superman memorabilia collection from Mike Meyer, a long time fan of the iconic DC superhero. His punishment? Well, he's now on his way to jail, courtesy of Circuit Judge Richard Tognarelli who sentenced him to six years in prison.

In case you've forgotten the details, Armbuster befriended Meyer after overhearing details of his pricey collection and robbed him of it while Meyer was distracted by a movie.

Fans and celebrities alike gathered to help rebuild the collection, which was thankfully returned when Armbruster was later caught. Oh, and how did police manage to nab him? They caught up to the guy while investigating another crime: he had beaten and robbed a 76 year old man who was trying to hire him to clean up a vacant business. Careful not to drop the soap now Gerry...

I hate when people attack old, defenseless seniors. How cowardly. I'm glad he got a few years there! He'll be made someone's bitch in jail.

First off intruder's comment made me laugh a lot. Also was the guy given 6 years for stealing the collection or for beating up the elderly man or both?

I cant believe someone had the guts to steal something from a disabled person. Well I kinda did. But dang!!
JDUKE25 - 11/15/2011, 1:53 PM
Good. But 6 years??? Screw that....should have gotten AT LEAST 15 years.

Bring back hanging.

Strip that filthbag thief buck naked, hang him by his thumbs, and horsewhip him. Do this whole thing in public. Public humiliation is a great way to discourage doing something as loathsome as taking advantage of the mentally disabled.
reverendjonnynemo - 11/15/2011, 4:27 PM
Already??? Did the guy plead guilty?
sarahsatire - 11/15/2011, 4:36 PM
This reminds me of the time my entire childhood collection of NES/SNES/Sega/Dreamcast games and systems were stolen and pawned by a family "friend". I'm not even handicapable but I still got rooked. At least he didn't get my comics! I'd say justice served here.

As punishment I think the bastard should be court ordered to wash and wipe the old guy's and the Super man fan's ass every day for that 6 year term with a piece of dental floss.

@Nemo yeas, he pleaded guilty. Really people? "Forget the law! Give him life!!!"

Yeah, it was disgusting what he did.But, still, there are laws andall that to give him a "fair" sentence

*by fair I mean one that fits the crime.
