(Newser) – It's not the most complicated criminal scheme ever, but whatever works: Cops say the guy in charge of ordering ink cartridges for the printers at Sloan-Kettering hospital ordered extras from Office Depot—a lot of extras—and sold them on the black market. His little deception earned him as much as $3.8 million over the last few years, reports the Wall Street Journal. No official word on what tripped him up, but it couldn't have helped that he lived in a Trump high-rise, owned a BMW, and routinely made five-figure bank deposits on a $37,000 salary.
