(Newser) – They had a niche: Police say a mother and son stole $10,000 worth of chainsaws from stores in Michigan and then tried to sell them on Craigslist in Chicago, reports ABC Local. The grand scheme fell through, however, and Gaci Juric, 57, and Ali Ivanov, 35, now face charges of racketeering and retail fraud. Investigators from Michigan and Illinois worked on the case for a year, reports WLNS in Lansing. The suspects face up to 20 years in prison, and a third partner in crime is still being sought.

20 years? this makes one year of prison for each $500 stolen, 250 if one accounts that the thieves were 2 at least. summed up to the low criminal profile of these 2 generations of dumbasses sounds a little bit like overkill.

Maybe they shouldn't have included: "never used since we stole them" on their Craig's listing.
