Boner Candidate #1: RIGHT UNDER THEIR NOSES

A man held an 81-year-old Marine Corps veteran hostage in his squalid motel room for at least four years in order to steal his benefit checks, authorities said Thursday. Perry Coniglio was arrested Tuesday in his room adjoining the victim’s at a motel in Highlands. The motel sits next door to the police station in the Hudson Valley town, about 50 miles north of New York City. Coniglio, 43, used brute force and intimidation to get the mentally diminished veteran to cooperate with him, police said. The elderly man has advanced dementia, according to police. Police Chief Jack Quinn said the veteran received a “tremendous amount of money” each month in Social Security benefits, pension checks and food stamps, though investigators would not divulge the exact total. The veteran was taken to a hospital for evaluation. His name hasn’t been released by police.

Boner Candidate #3: STEALING FROM THE DEAD

Police in Tennessee say a woman stole the wallet from a crash victim, then used his credit card at a convenience store instead of calling 911. Brittney McCoy, 26, of Greenbrier, was arrested last week and charged with burglary, tampering with evidence, theft of property and fraudulent use of a credit card. Police say McCoy was the first person to spot the July 1 pickup truck crash outside her home.  Ronald Lewis Clinard, 67, died in the crash. Authorities said it’s unclear if Clinard was still alive when McCoy arrived on the scene and took his wallet. Police said they’re looking into whether a pistol was also taken. Clinard’s credit card was used to buy beer, cigarettes and other items, police said, explaining that surveillance video captured McCoy making the purchases
