Miami’s ABC affiliate reports:
A Florida man who recently bought a private-island estate for $8 million was arrested Friday after police said he stole about $300 worth of household items from a Key West Kmart.
Andrew Lippi, 59, faces a charge of grand theft. According to the arrest report, Lippi bought a Keurig coffee machine for about $150 on March 30, but he returned the item a day later. However, when Kmart employees inspected the box they found a basketball inside, the report said.
On Thursday, Lippi went back to the Kmart and bought a Hamilton Beach coffee maker and two packs of LED light bulbs for around $105, the report said. Hours later, Lippi returned the items for a refund. Kmart employees found that the new coffee maker had been swapped out for an older model.
Andrew Francis Lippi also owns the “Real World” house in Key West, where MTV shot its 17th season in 2006. https://t.co/BqnLIPXx13
