Serial criminal appears in court after police allegedly catch him in the act of robbing homes in Millis, Massachusetts.
If it is too crazy to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result, Eric Cupernell should have no problem insanity plead.
Cupernell, a Massachusetts man sentenced for burglary 50 times, was caught red-handed — again — on Tuesday the theft of valuables from a house, officials said.
Millis police officers patrol in a residential area, said they spotted Cupernell – who has a 14-page rap sheet acting suspicious and looking around as if “casing the area.”
Soon after they spotted Cupernell leaving a house across the street a parked car, holding what appeared to be a pillowcase, Boston 25 reported.

When officers approached him, police said Cupernell took the walk through the forest before he what he did on the ground.
“They observed him drop what appeared to be a pillowcase and small boxes, found scattered on the ground,” prosecutor Katelyn Marden said.
In the pillowcase, police said they found stolen jewelry. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed stolen license plates.
“They saw the New Hampshire plate was actually attached over a Mass. registration plate to hide the vehicle from the owner,” said Marden.
