Sticky-fingered John Patrick Weismiller will be breaking his habit with a year in prison.

The Oregonian was sentenced last month for making a career out of petty shoplifting, after his prolific thievery caught the eye of the FBI.

According to an FBI press release yesterday, 41-year- old Weismiller was caught on tape stuffing his pockets over 100 times at Safeway alone in 2011. Targeting big chain box stores, he earned $43k reselling the merchandise online, and cost stores $73k in losses.

The FBI reports that industry experts estimate retail criminals, including ‘boosters’ like Weismiller, cost the U.S. about $30 billion a year. The result is higher prices for American consumers and less sales tax revenue for state and local governments.
