Most people have a deadbeat or creepy uncle in their family. Hey, its your mom’s baby brother, so you gotta be nice…or not in this case.
A thirty-one-year-old man was arrested after allegedly dipping his hand a bit too far into his nephew’s piggy bank.
Baron Calmese asked his sister last year if he could borrow a mere couple of dollars. At the time, Calmese was living with his sister and his nephew. After getting permission from his sister to get $2, Calmese allegedly cashed out the four-year-old’s piggy bank to the tune of $500. The fact that a four-year-old accumulated that kind of cash is a feat in itself.
Calmese pleaded guilty and when asked why he did it said, man, I bought a piece of a** and some heroin.”
The uncle’s sentence hearing is scheduled for June 28. No word yet on whether the four-year-old nephew will invest in a safe to store future allowances.
