Moishe can't make up this headline, it's real: "Big Theft Ends in Shackles for a Young Goth Couple"

CLEVELAND — It was a theft so large and brazen that even law enforcement officials admit some admiration for it.

One suspect, the authorities say, spent nine months working for an armored car company, learning its employee-shift patterns and the access codes for its safes. By the police account, he and his girlfriend waited until the Monday night after Thanksgiving, when the year’s largest receipts from retailers were in those safes, then looted them and drove to the remote hills of southern West Virginia.

There, joined by his mother, they holed up in a mobile home they had found on a scouting trip in October, and counted their haul: $7.4 million in cash and checks.
