That could be bailout money that they got from us so had I been lucky enough to grab some of it, I'd keep it. I'm sure Pres.Obama will replace any missing money ten times over.

Sounds like an inside type of thing to me.

Really ,the door wasnt closed? Um dont they have extra security on those things and a checklist to follow? Like my car lets me know when my doors are not closed ...

As much as I would like to believe some needy family happened upon money to save the farm.. I doubt that is what happened here.

This reminds me of one of our beloved local legends named Joey Coyle. People loved Joey. They made a movie about him called "Money For Nothing".


Back in 1981 a bag fell from an armored car while Coyle and friends were behind it. 2.1 million. Ka-Ching. Joey scooped up the bag and was giving out $100 bills to neighors and friends.

Sadly his life was nothing but misery after that. He even went to trial and they let him off saying Joey was temporarily insane due to $$$$$$$$. After the trial jurors hugged him and women jurors kissed him. I remember the excitement as I was dating a guy from his neighborhood. Coyle had a conscience poor guy. He wound up commiting suicide.

In comparisson $200,000 is jack squat plus more than one person was running around scooping the money up. If it was an inside job they screwed up.
