HARTFORD -- Anthony Johnson's weekends of crawling across movie theater floors, pilfering purses and running up $30,000 bills on other people's credit cards are over for now.

The 49-year-old convicted felon -- who made a living selling the $1,000 gift cards, iPods, cellphones and designer sunglasses he bought using the stolen cards -- was convicted Monday by a U.S. District Court jury on seven charges of using a stolen credit card and two charges of identity theft.

The thefts took place between 2008 and 2010 at several movie theaters, including Bow Tie Cinemas in Greenwich and Fairfield Cinemas.

She said Johnson chose primarily Fairfield County theaters showing movies like "Eat, Pray, Love;" "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button;" and "Twilight Eclipse" because "there'd be a lot of white women there ... He said these were million-dollar movies."

Looks like ethnic and gender profiling to me!

He primarily robbed movies that were characterized by police as "white-female friendly."

I guess the EBT cards he could have stolen from the purses of the Madea crowd were less lucrative.

If there was any justice, he’d be sentenced to continue to do the same job... but at a triple-X theater.

The last time I was in one was when I was 18. I wanted to see what the big deal (my friends talked about some 1970s movies that were XXX rated), so I went to one on my 18th birthday.

Of course, some of those movies had better writing then the CRAP Hollywood produces today -- that is rated G, PG, PG-13!
