He had just been released from jail on Monday, September 10 2007, after he had pleaded guilty to conning three women out of thousands of dollars. He had been sentenced to one year in jail and had been released for time served and good behavior.
Edward Magenheimer, 70, had only been out of the Westchester County NY jail for less than 24 hours when he was arrested again. He was spotted at approximately 6:20 am, driving a white 1996 Jaguar in the suburbs about 20 miles north of Manhatten and was taken into custody. It seems that it wasn't his car, he had stolen it when it was left running outside of a deli.
Magenheimer, who had recently had heart bypass surgery, was charged with third-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony, for the theft of the car. According to the Westchester County District Attorney's Office, he is being represented by Legal Aid.
It would seem that his good behavior only lasted a day or possibly, he just missed the good food and close friends he had while he was in jail..... he couldn't have stolen the car to impress more ladies into handing over their cash to him, I hope.
