Sometimes people really want to buy something but don't have the money so they resort to theft. That is definitely not the case with 59-year-oldAndrew Lippi from the Florida Keys. He's actually filthy rich and late last month, he bought a private island with a huge estate for $8 million dollars. As if that wasn't enough, he also owns a 12-bedroom mansion that was used for the 17th season of "The Real World" in 2006.But even though he obviously has plenty of money, he got arrested on over the weekend for trying to steal $300 worth of stuff from KMART. Apparently, he needed stuff for his new mansion. Turns out that right after he closed on the property, he went out and bought two new coffeemakers, eight light bulbs, and a bed skirt at Kmart. Then police say he put other stuff in the boxes and tried to return them. The box for the bed skirt had a pillowcase in it and he replaced the light bulbs with other bulbs plus put a basketball in a Keurig coffeemaker box. Andrew claims he didn't do it, and someone else must have switched out the products. He's facing a felony grand theft charge, and he's due in court next week.
