GREENWICH, CT – Just how the Grinch stole Christmas like a slithering snake, Anthony Johnson stole credit cards pretty much the same way, by slithering around movie theater floors and snatching credit cards from women’s purses. When the lights went down, he went into action.

Greenwich, Connecticut police say Anthony, usually with some accomplices, did this from 2008 to 2010. They would then use the credit cards to charge up to $30,000 worth of gift cards, iPods, cell phones and other goodies.

Anthony was finally convicted this year on seven charges of using a stolen credit card and two charges of identity theft. And we were able to ID Anthony as our latest Dumbass of the Day!
