He Got the Meter(s)
In busting one of the more brilliant capers of recent vintage, police discovered 140 parking meters in a man’s house in Cambridge. While the alleged meter bandit was no doubt trying to find a rock big enough to crack them open and get to all those lovely bits of silver, we think our new favorite criminal is ignoring a can’t-miss opportunity.
In a bit of entrepreneurship that would make Cosmo Kramer walk into furniture, what if our guy simply sold off the meters to various motorists? (Concrete sold separately). You buy a meter, throw it in the back of your hatchback and set it up whenever, and wherever, you please.
Brilliant. It would totally remake the South End.
