He's being held on a $55,000 bail, and faces charges of burglary, forgery, theft an other charges, according to police. 

On Feb. 12, Ngissah was arrested on charges that he fraudulently purchased furniture for his home, costing a local business $8,000.

This gentleman obviously needs to hone his skills as a con artist. It worked for a while, but he got too confident, I guess. Bernie Madoff was a lot better at it than this man.

Three strikes and your out. Why, do we even wait for the third strike for some people. Get RID of him NOW. Send him to the middle of the desert and let him go, along with thousands of more like him. I'm sick of watching our country going down the drain.
