Men Arrested in Jennifer Lopez Non-Sex Tape Video Theft

These have to be two of the stupidest criminal minds. Two men have been arrested for trying to sell Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez‘s stolen wedding video back to the couple for $1 million. Why on earth would the couple choose to pay $1 million as opposed to going to the police? Especially when the criminals, Tito Moses and Steven Wortman, had been shopping the video around. Stupid is, as stupid does.

The men tried to ransom the video after first shopping it around unsuccessfully to media outlets including People, Us Weekly, and Access Hollywood, according to a criminal complaint filed against them.

Tito Moses, 31, and Steven Wortman, 49, were arraigned late Wednesday in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of conspiracy, attempted grand larceny and possession of stolen property.

A copy of the celebrity couple’s wedding video was on a laptop computer that was in Anthony’s car when it was stolen in Linden, N.J., last October. The car was later recovered but the laptop was gone. According to the complaint, once they failed to sell the video to the media, Moses and Wortman called Marc Anthony Productions and tried to sell it back to the salsa star.

An NYPD detective posing as an Anthony associate engaged in a series of negotiations with Moses and Wortman between Dec. 20 and Dec. 27, during which the men demanded $1 million for the laptop, the complaint said.

At one point the detective refused the $1 million demand and Wortman threatened to destroy it, the complaint said. Moses and Wortman were arrested in a sting Tuesday when they allegedly met with police to sell the laptop for a lesser amount.
