Connecticut Cops Fail To Appreicate The Commuting Habits Of SAC Capital Employee

Late last week, a New Cannan resident, Janie Konidaris was charged with lying to the police about a helicopter landing near her house the previous Saturday morning. When first questioned about it, Konidaris told them she’d didn’t recall seeing a chopper that day, but when the fuzz came back, she told them that in fact there had been a helicopter, which had landed on her lawn to pick up her husband, Jason Konidaris, Global Head of Syndicate at SAC.

Obviously if we were talking about the greater population here, the problem would be that Mrs. JK lied to the police, which is frowned up. But we’re not talking about the great population here and so the question, why was the 5-0 hassling her about this at all? It’s an unspoken town code that SAC employees can park their vehicles wherever they’d like. Most people know this and yet, here we are. In an effort to give the cops the benefit of the doubt and to prevent this sort of thing from happening again, we’re going to assume that they didn’t realize who Janie is married to. Moving forward, all employees (and their spouses) should be given laminated cards that indicate it’s not a problem to land their chopper (or however they’re commuting that day) on a front lawn, SAC HQ, the roof of Beamers, Cliff Asness’s backyard inflatable bouncy castle,** or otherwise. “Restricted Area” bull shit need not apply.

    All I can say is at least it wasn’t a Thanksgiving Day stunt to drop live domestic turkeys (which apparently can’t fly very well) out of the helicopter for SAC employees.

    The government wants these guys and their related ilk gone. Goldman in its current form will not be around in 2012. Mark my words.

    Janie L. Treanor Konidaris is a Stamford based atty, who wrote an article on the FAA under her maiden name Janie L. Treanor.

    Pretty amusing.

    great story.

    I’d be interested in hearing Janie’s version of her conversation with the New Canaan cops. They have a history of lying in their arrest charges. I’m guessing she did nothing wrong.

  22. Guest says:

    Have known them for years. WOW!

  23. guest says:

    Jason and Janie are not special. They need to be reminded of that. Jason can be the head of the CIA, FBI, SEC, or the Fed. They still have to obey every law and ordinance like everyone else.
