This is Plate - aka the Modesto Maniac - aka Blake Wach. After serving two terms in Vietnam, he was wrongfully convicted of stealing 350,000,000 push pins from a local distributor and spent 4 years in San Quentin State Prison. His charges were eventually overturned, and he was awarded a considerable sum for the time he spent behind bars. Plate put this money to good use by investing in the highly volatile Beanie Babies market. He now owns approximately $1.8M in mint-condition stuffed animals: don't ask, he won't let you touch them.
