Cracked glass stair from 5th Ave Apple store lands on eBay

$2,500 for a cracked stair?

Maybe it's just me, but If you swipe something from an Apple Store without the employees knowing it you might not want to post the item on eBay for sale stating that you liberated it from the store. An eBay auction has turned up for a stair from the Apple Store on 5th Ave in NYC.

The guy offering the stair says that it was cracked when someone dropped a bottle on it and was replaced by store workers. The guys states he took the stair before the workers could throw it away. What he should say is I took it before I thought they were going to trash it.

 

The dude claims that the stairs cost $10,000 new and he wants $2,500 for the stolen, cracked stair. I have to wonder how Apple will feel about this. The guy could be looking at serious jail time if Apple wants to press this and the $10K price is accurate. You are an idiot if you buy this, I'm just sayin'.
