The Texas Stripper and the 2005 Maserati

According to Fox News, police in Houston, TX, are looking for a stripper who stole the identity of an autistic woman from Wisconsin. According to police, the stripper used the WI woman’s identity to buy a pair of sports cars, including a 2006 BMW and a 2005 Maserati. The total value of the two cars comes to more than $113k. The Maserati has been recovered in Fort Bend County, but the BMW is still missing. A warrant for the arrest of one Stacy Marie Oberley, 28, who has “danced” at Houston area men's clubs, was on probation for narcotics trafficking. Oberley is charged with providing a false statement to obtain credit, which is a second-degree felony. Detectives say Oberley may still be in the Houston area, but they're notifying authorities in WI, in case she shows up there. If you see Ms. Oberley, do not lend her your car, credit card or cash register. But do ask which Maser she purchased, and why any criminal would buy such an unreliable getaway car.

As an avid electronic junkie, Glenn holds an Advanced Class amateur ("ham") radio license, and is into many things electronic. From a satellite radio and portable GPS unit in the cars, to a modest home theater system and radio-intercom in his home, if it's run by the movement of electrons, he's interested. :-)

    Must have been a rather high-functioning autistic to qualify for enough credit to buy a Maserati and a BMW! I'm thinking more Rain Man savant or Dr. House's Asperger's...

    @ Blunozer House doesn't have Asperger's, he just wishes he could use it as an excuse. And it's not lupus, either. Nothing says "classy" like a neck tattoo.

    Country must be in terrible shape, if she can't find a sugar daddy to buy her a Maserati.

    I may have seen her, but need a topless photo to verify.
