TV Pitchman Vince Offer

Remember Vince Offer (née Shlomi), the ShamWow/Slap Chop TV infomercials guy who had a spot of trouble with a strumpet in South Beach in February 2009?

While the Israeli-born pitchman hasn't done anything of note of late, the Southampton Village Police nabbed a guy last week who could probably pass for his brother.

Paul R. Zambuto/Vince Shlomi, a/k/a "Offer"

According to the police, Paul R. Zambuto (left), a builder from Shirley was arrested...

"...and accused of stealing more than $2,500 worth of copper downspouts and leaders from a Foster Crossing residence in Southampton Village last month."

Zambuto was arraigned in Southampton Village Justice Court last Saturday and is sitting in Riverhead in the Suffolk County hoosegow in lieu of $10,000 bail while police investigate "several other copper thefts in the Southampton area."

There is no word on whether Zambuto and Shlomi are related.
