    he just dropped them while walking away? Wasn’t being chased? Were they 50 Lb sacks of cash!?!

      …it says he “fled.”

  • Seems that metro ad saying “It’s never a bag full of money” was WRONG! ;D

    la mano down the street from republic posted a video on facebook the other day, a dude was toiling around inside the shop before just grabbing all the cash out of the tip jar and running out. i guess this would be a BIG step up (although still doesn’t seem very well thought out) from that kind of theft, but…could be the same dude. that sucks.
