Making it hard on yourself


Is it ever worth it to steal coins?

Apparently one guy thought so.
A man robbed the Palladium IMAX at the Rim Shopping Center of thousands of dollars in coins Monday.

Police said the man parked in the front of the theater at Loop 1604 and Interstate 10 and used a side entrance to enter the building.

The man took an elevator to the second floor, where he confronted the manager and forced him at gunpoint to open a safe and load trash bags with coins and bills, police said.

The manager and an assistance manager were forced to carry the bags, some [of] which tore due to the weight of the coins, to the man's car, police said.

Be on the lookout for anyone approaching a Coinstar with a wheelbarrow.
