Cops: Man Steals Judge’s Nameplate, Poses With It On Facebook

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A Coral Springs man was arrested after it was discovered that he stole a judge’s nameplate after posing for a picture with the pilfered item on Facebook.

Documents provided to CBS Tampa by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office state that Steven Mulhall, 21, took the sign indicating the office of Judge Michael J. Orlando sometime around Feb. 23.

“[On Feb. 24], an anonymous tip was received that advised that [Mulhall] and his girlfriend were the people responsible for the theft,” the incident report states. “A photograph posted on Facebook under the account of [girlfriend] Natalie Coma Toze Segura, showed [Mulhall] posing with the sign.”

The online posting was matched with a mug shot of Mulhall obtained from a previous infraction.

He was charged with one count of petty theft. However, since he has at least two prior convictions, the theft charge is now considered a felony.

The sign is reportedly worth $39.45.
