A guy from Australia hired someone to steal all of his girlfriend's stuff out of their house in August . . . so when he dumped her during their vacation, it would be easier for her to move out. But the cops quickly figured out what happened when they got back . . . he was arrested . . . and he just got 12 months of probation.
A 30-year-old guy named Michael Boulton was in court last week after his INSANE break-up plan fell apart.
No, not that one. This Michael lives in Australia. Michael and his girlfriend went on vacation together at the end of August, and he DUMPED her while they were away. He knew it would be tough when they got back to their home and she had to move out. So . . . he hired someone for $150 to break into their house while they were away and steal all of her stuff. I guess he figured that would get her out quicker. The cops quickly figured out what happened when they got back and she reported the robbery. Michael was arrested and he pleaded guilty to one count of stealing. He got 12 months of probation, plus he has to pay his ex-girlfriend $675 in damages.
