UPDATE (9/21/18, 2:11pm):
The dad who was caught on video sending his toddler into an arcade crane machine to steal valuable prizes has turned himself in. 34-year-old Anthony Helinski, a Massachusetts middle school teacher, surrendered to police in New Hampshire. He faces charges of theft, criminal trespass and endangering the welfare of a child. His school has also placed him on leave pending an investigation. Helinski is due in court next month.
The police in Salem, New Hampshire are looking for a guy who used his toddler to steal a bunch of prizes from an arcade machine at a mall on Friday night.
The game is called BarBerCut Lite (see ‘claw machine’) And it’s one of those games that seem easy, tempting you with AWESOME PRIZES (Nintendo Switch) but are damn near impossible to win … UNLESS you instruct your young daughter to crawl through the hole and pass him a bunch of the toys, electronics, and gift cards! WINNER! WINNER!!!!
What a Loser!
