MICHELE NORRIS, host:
A little update now: On Monday, we told you about some mysteriously disappearing parking meters in Chicago - big ones, 200 pounds each. And 20 of them have been boosted since September, baffling locals.
Unidentified Man: They been grabbing these like hotcakes. I dont know who and where. I dont see how they could get away with it, you know what I mean?
NORRIS: Well, today, Chicago police charged a man with stealing four of those meters. They say he was driving a Ford van that was caught on video dumping a stolen meter. The suspect: 38-year-old Jeffrey Kaput. That's his real name. And you were expecting, Cool Hand Luke?
