Woman Arrested For Keeping Rented Movies 10 Years Past Due Date

A woman in Iowa was arrested last week for the theft of three video tapes from a local video store. She rented them in May of 1998, and a charge was filed against her in September of that same year after she repeatedly neglected to return them.

The Iowa City Press Citizen reports, “Weiss was charged with fourth-degree theft. She was taken to the Johnson County Jail, posted a cash bond and was released an hour later.” She then promptly signed up for Netflix, we hope.
