Coin Sucker all Washed Up

April 8, 2011

To bring a laugh to the world of coin collecting, because you know it, many of us are just dorks we've come across this hillarious coin related story about the lengths that thieves will go to. Have a read of the News story. It is alleged a man robbed vending machines with a vacuum cleaner in a bizarre get rich quick scheme. In Lincoln Nebraska an apartment complex owner installed surveillance cameras after realising someone was stealing quarters from the washing machines. The thief was recognised from the footage and promptly arrested by police.

Update December 2014: The news story above is now too old and has dropped off the main news stories. But this type of thing appears to happen quite often! Thieves steal coins with vacuum and Thieves steal change from a carwash with a vacuum!
