Son Bugs Mom (yawn)... with a Wiretap!

UK - Police have arrested a Lincoln man on suspicion that he bugged his 90-year-old mother’s phone. 

Richard Stamler, 59, was arrested Thursday night for unlawful interception of communications, a felony, Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood said.

Stamler’s sister called police March 28 to say she found a recording device in the basement of her mother’s home that had been connected to the phone line, Flood said.

The woman played the tape, Flood said, and recognized her brother’s voice reciting date information. The device was set to record any time someone in the house picked up a phone. (more)
