    I've pulled that trick on my mom several times. She's still waiting for her liquor store.

    Guy has $450k in cash and needs to make change--that's fantastic.

    And what kind of moron walks around with that kind of scratch, besides a drug dealer.

    Real smart cops there in Arkansas:

    Kevin Nickson of the Sheriffs Office said there is no reason to suspect that the large sum of money may have been associated with an illegal activity such as a drug deal.

    I wouldn't say he deserves to have his money stolen, but stupid is as stupid does.
