(Newser)   If the allegations are true, then this man might have pulled off more successful bank heists than anyone in history. Except, as the New York Times explains, he never stole money-only the rugs inside bank doors   (newser.com) divider line 27

He needed them to tie the room together.

Don't laugh. Stealing a rug was my first job with Clemenza.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: What the hell is "money-only"?


Money-only, it's the rugs they put inside the doors at banks.  I'm more curious how they get them inside the doors than I am with what they're made of.

One time, me and a fraternity brother managed to swipe a yellow Hertz car rental post from 30th street station in Philly and carried it all the way back to Powelton village. Yup, we were bad ass....

/they should have tightened the nuts down

And those rugs really tied those banks together, man.

Somebody help me out. I closed a pop-up window before I could read the whole thing, and all I could see were the words "Hoboken" "premier" and "luxury". I didn't think the words "premier" and "luxury" belonged in the same sentence with "Hoboken". I are confused.

And here I thought he was stealing bad hair pieces off of bank loan officers.
There are bald bodega owners, right?

"He had sold crack to an undercover officer in 2001, and had been in and out of prison and jail since the 1990s."

It's a helluva rug.

You could google "hoboken luxury apartments" if you really wanted.

When asked why he robbed banks, Willie said "that's where the rugs are."

It was unclear on Friday what the rugs were worth.

Let's assume we're talking about typical mats for double doors, 3x5 foot. On Grainger, about $50 for the cheap, $130 for high end. It's easy to research these things. And this might be a selling point for branded mats or a uniform service company like Aramark.

Picking it up from the floor ain't really stealing.

It's a perfectly cromulent cliché. Proven by the fact that reading intelligent stories adds minutes to your life.

that isnt luxury.

Those are "builder specials" full of crap finishes and shoddy work. fake luxury. If you want a current example of what a real luxury unit is, look at 15 CPW, Beekman tower, Perry Street Condos, etc.

Has anyone addressed bank pen thieves yet?

Mr. Ekshun: Has anyone addressed bank pen thieves yet?


No, because the pens are all gone. Plenty of envelopes (so far), just no pens. In fact I'm wondering right now where a pen is.
