A MAN STEALS $33,000 IN RARE COINS, CASHES THEM FOR $29.30 AT A COINSTAR MACHINE!


How dumb do you have to be to steal a rare coin collection, then say something like, “Hey, look at this quarter from 1843.  Just 50 more of these and I can buy myself some Miller High Life”?

 

There’s a 40-year-old guy named Shane Mele from Riviera Beach, Florida.  And back in December, he broke into his boss’s office, and stole the guy’s rare coin collection.  It was worth about $33,000.

 

Then Shane took the coins to a Coinstar machine, and cashed them in at FACE VALUE.  And he got enough store credit to buy two 12-packs of beer.  So yeah, he turned $33,000 in coins into roughly $30.

 

He was just arrested for grand theft.  But unfortunately, the cops haven’t been able to recover the missing coin
