Money for the Poor, old man who owes Tom Brady

By Greg
We have all seen them, beggars, who try to pry any money they can out of you. Some are rude, some are kind, some are creative, most stink but none are like Dennis Pavia. Dennis is not begging for money for drinks, drugs or food but rather to pay back a man who makes over 30 million a year, Tom Brady.

Dennis is an ex-con or maybe just a regular old con who was caught stealing flower boxes worth over 8,000 dollars each from Mr. Brady.

Heres Dennis side of the story

I would go out the night before the trash got picked up and see what people put out. If there was anything good, I would take it and sell it,” he explained.
Of course, as Paiva explains it, he always found better stuff in the ritzier neighborhoods, so one night last fall he found himself in an alley in the Back Bay checking the discards.
“I saw these two stainless steel metal containers behind a garage next to the trash,” Paiva said. “Scrap metal was really high at the time so I grabbed them and put them in my truck.”
Paiva took the planters to a scrapyard in Everett, collected $450 and was feeling pretty good about life. Right up until he got a call from a Boston police detective.
“The guy mentions I took some flower pots,” Paiva recalled. “I said,‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ He said, ‘We got you on the security camera.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I took them, but they were out with the trash.’ He said, ‘You gotta get them back. You don’t even want to know who they belong to!’ ”
Well, when Paiva heard who owned his “scrap metal,” he rushed back to the yard but, of course, the planters were history. He went back to police and told them the sad tale and was promptly cited for larceny.
“I said, ‘You’re kidding me, they were in the trash!’ ” Paiva said. “The police talked to the people in the building and they said that deliverymen had left the planters in the back because there was no one home. Everyone agreed it was a mistake.”“I have no balance, my vision is blurred,” he said. “I can’t work and I’m supposed to pay $333.33 a month to Brady.”- Globe

I guess you got to feel for this guy. Who knows what the real story is. Obviously Brady does not need the money or the flower pots.
Dennis said he has no idea if Brady knows about his plight, but thinks the QB might cut him a break if he did.
Lets hope that this is the only thing that gets stolen from Brady this season. Although if I had my way I would not mind stealing that wife away from him.......
