    Was at work and doing my nightly chores of stocking the beer and taking out the trash.. Well as i was taking out the trash there was a van parked by our dumpsters and I saw a guy with a 4 ft. pry bar.. he saw me coming and threw the pry bar in the van and set in the drivers seat.. As I walked by he said " How u Doing?" I said " Pretty good. How about u? " He said the same..

    Well as I picked up the trash can to dump it i noticed a IndyStar vending machine under his van.. He was using the van hold the machine down why he pried it open.. I read the plate in a quick qlance and walk back inside like nothing was going on... I then called 911 and began telling them what was going on as I went back out side and he seen me on the phone and took off dragging the machine under his van.. I chased him on foot and almost caught up to him till he hit the highway all the while being on the phone with the police.. As I was headed fpr the car a State trooper asked what the problem was and I told him quickly and we both went after the van.. We both arrived at the location about 2 miles up at a gas station where the officer took him down at gun point as I stood there laughing.. By the way the officer knows me.. Once they ran the man we were informed he was an Escaped convict and been on the run for about a year.. And the van was stolen too!!!! I bet the phone call to the police sounds funny cause i told them i was chasing a van on foot and almost caught it.. :smile2::smile2: Well he went to jail and we headed back to the scene of the crime and a IndyStar rep came out and opened the box and there was only $1.50 in it.. The idiot took a newpapre vending machine that was full of papers... Which would mean not alot of money in there... hahahaha people are so stupid!!!! But It was fun!! i'd do it again and again...:big_smile:

    Reckon after a year on the run he was gettin hungry. The reason they get caught is cause they ain't as smart as they think they are. Tryin to open the cash box on a full vending machine, here's your sign ...

    Good job, Shane. A couple of years ago my sister was driving to work in Nashville and heard on the radio a man was killed over $37. They described the killer, long hair, heavy set, over 6' tall, wearing overalls. She happened to see someone like that walking down a sidewalk in town, she called the cops, and sure 'nuff, it was the killer. They caught him and called her back and thanked her.
