It's not like he didn't have the money

Police have pinched a pencil perp.

Officers in Bellingham, Wash., report busting Gregory B. Torrey for stealing a six-buck mechanical pencil.

But Torrey had more than $600 cash on him at the time.

So why did he take the pencil when he had enough to buy a hundred of them?

Officers quote Torrey as saying he guesses he was "being stupid."
