Man Caught After Dropping His Casino Player’s Card At The Home He Robbed

Tags: Edward Parker Eldridge.
Posted on Tuesday, March 01, 2016 by "T".

It's bad enough to break into someone's home, but then to wear the homeowner's clothes, eat their food and drink their wine is just adding salt to the wound. A man from Biloxi, Mississippi is accused of committing all that, and because of his actions, he is sentenced to 8 years behind bars.

It was a Thursday night that a jury found Edward Parker Eldridge, age 61, to be guilty of burglary. Eldridge apparently broke into a cottage located on Beach Boulevard on June 10, 2014.

Assistant District Attorney Beth McFadyen stated, "The victim returned home from work and saw that his house had been broken into and rummaged through. All of the homeowner's property had been scattered across the cottage and the defendant made himself at home by eating a ham sandwich and drinking the victim's wine."

The homeowner found a casino player's club card with the name "Edward Eldridge" affixed to it while tidying up the mess left by the burglar. He then took the card and other evidence to the police department. The authorities remembered on that same day, a man bearing that name had been stopped by police in the exact same place, on an isolated report of trespassing.

The homeowner also stated that Eldridge was even apprehended while wearing his stolen shirt. The victim said the shirt was easily recognizable since it had the distinctive logo and name of his family's farm in north Mississippi.

Circuit Judge Larry Bourgeois sentenced the burglar to 20 years in prison, with 12 years suspended. Eldridge will serve eight years in prison, and another three years of probation.

I would say he got off light, capital punishment should be reserved for crimes like this one.

That is a harsh sentence in its own right. There must be more to this story or the back ground of the offender that lead to such a severe sentence. There must also be some sadness to this story, the poor gambler was hungry and needed refreshment. Unfortunately he went the wrong way about it and gambled incorrectly.

G'day mates

Reading about these kinds of stupid, idiotic unprofessional criminals just make me sick.
I mean my God, every competent thief knows that when you are on a job, you never take any identifying documents with you just to be safe.
Unprofession morons like this idiot should just be shot & wizzed on and there body left to rot in the desert sun.
I'm just sayin, He is the type who gives decent criminals a bad name.
