Mouth-breathing moron who stole ring-tailed lemur from zoo is caught


Aquinas Kasbar, 19, of Newport Beach, faces up to a year in prison and a maximum of a $100,000 fine after agreeing to plead guilty to one misdemeanor count of unlawfully taking an endangered species, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California said in a statement Monday.

Kasbar broke into the zoo after hours July 27, used bolt cutters to cut a hole in enclosures for lemurs and capuchin monkeys and took the 32-year-old lemur named Isaac, prosecutors said. The following day, he left the animal in a plastic drawer outside a Newport Beach hotel with a note that said, “This belongs to the Santa Ana Zoo it was taken last night please bring it to police,” prosecutors said.

The hole that Kasbar cut allowed several other animals to escape, and they were all recovered, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Kasbar’s attorney, Brian Gurwitz, said in a phone interview Monday evening that the teen “quickly realized it was a bad decision ,and he took steps that night to ensure that it would be returned safely to the zoo.”

“It was a poor youthful decision made by a high school student,” Gurwitz said.

Kasbar also faces a slew of charges related to a series of burglaries in Newport Beach.

  1. Will the MSM be reporting on these Somali teens’ much worse crimes? Killers at heart, not just morons.

    Audio: Mob with Hammers Descends on Minneapolis East Bank LRT Patrons
    A mob of eight to 10 males wielding hammers descended upon bystanders at the East Bank Light Rail station on Friday night injuring several, according to recorded police dispatch audio.
    By MN Crime – May 20, 2019
    The incident was apparently reported to 911 just before 10 p.m. on Friday according to the audio and other social media police scanner reports. A 9:48 p.m. Facebook post on 2nd Precinct Minneapolis Crime Watch page said that University of Minnesota (U of M) police were requesting assistance from Minneapolis police (MPD) and Metro Transit police for “a group of 8-10 males chasing people with hammers” and that some people were injured. A Facebook post a minute later on Minneapolis Scanner page said that the three police departments were responding to “multiple [911] calls” about “10-12 Somali teen males armed with hammers chasing people,” also with “several injuries reported.”
    Both Facebook pages regularly post summaries of police scanner audio.

    “A person who claimed on social media to have been at the station when the incident occurred said that the group of males had “hammers and bars,”
    and that they seemed to be “attacking anyone who looked like they had money or were white.” ”

  2. With those shoulders I can see how he squeezed into the cage.

    Oh well, he just spent his post high school education money.
    “want fries with that?” will be his new mantra.

  3. When he gets to jail they gonna be:
    “Rockin the Kasbar
    Rockin the Kasbar!”

    Was the lemur sexually assaulted?
    Did they do a rape test?
