Prison these days isn't like the Hilton

A rather stupid man has been arrested trying to sell Paris Hilton's phone on the internet, according to the New York Post.

Hotel manager Marc Marrouche had been on a boozy night out in a Manhattan nightclub when he chanced upon the ubiquitous trust fund tit's mobile. Sensing an opportunity to make some cash off the back of this find, 30 year old Marrouche then advertised it on Craigslist, thinking that he'd manage to attract enough attention to sell the thing for five thousand dollars without the law hearing about it.

However, instead of pocketing five large he got stung by an undercover cop, and now he faces up to a year in in the clink. If only the police spent as much time and effort trying to recover our nicked phones, the world would be a better place.
