Andrew Lippi, 59, was accused of stealing about $300 worth of household goods from a Kmart in Key West, according to ABC News, citing police sources.
Key West Police Department officials cited in the report accused Lippi of buying a range of items between March 30 and April 4, swapping them out for cheaper versions and then returning the substitute goods for a refund.
Lippi recently made headlines when he bought Thompson Island, a private estate, for $8 million, according to WPLG.
According to the Miami Herald, Lippi also owns a house on Key Haven, where the MTV series “Real World” shot its 17th season in 2006. That property rents for around $1,000 per night on Airbnb.
