Mildly attractive woman in her late 30s. Still, it's Lousiana, that probably does qualify as hottest peace officer.

The ruling on the field stands. Point to subby.

Unpossible.  There are no honest cops in Louisiana

How the hell does an armored car driver not lock the damn door as they drive away?

I wonder how many of us would turn it in, if we knew there was no way to trace it.

Louisiana is my favorite southern state. In other states (I'm looking at you, WA) everyone dresses like they're going to summit Mt. Everest right after work. In LA, I wonder how restaurant owners can make a living, since it seems that 50% of the vehicles on the road have some sort of sporting or hunting gear looking like it was in use not more than 15 minutes earlier, and a cooler full of something which will undoubtedly taste pretty damn good.

Also, for the record, my money is on "hot as my favorite cajun place"
/and damned honest, too.

Maybe not out of a crowd, but if she upped the ante by pretending to be my probation officer, questioned me closely about my associates, and told me I needed to be punished, then yeah.
 
2013-11-21 04:53:28 AM
Did she return all $150,000?
 
2013-11-21 04:55:41 AM
methinks it is time to research alternate armored car companies....

Whoop-dee-doo. So those parasites of society at the casino got to keep the money that they leeched from the poor and desperate. Am I supposed to be glad for this?

You mean they did to the poor and desperate what the poor and desperate intended to do to them? Turnabout is fair play, and you can't con an honest man.

Yup, those damn casinos send out their press gangs to round  up the poor and desperate from the streets and force them to gamble.

I won't disagree with that. Last time time I was in a casino, my reaction was:

You *can* make consistent money in a casino - but not by taking it from the house. You have to play pari-mutuel games like horse racing and poker in order to be a long-term winner. That's not to say you WILL be, just that, mathematically, it's the only way it's even possible.
 
2013-11-21 05:54:26 AM
I'd be afraid to return it. They would probably say I stole it.
 
2013-11-21 06:14:50 AM
A little long in the tooth to be the hottest, but most hittable otherwise.

Just refer to the case of Finders vs. Keepers.  Or get your law-talking guy to do it.

I wouldn't especially if the bag had a name on it and I knew it was from a casino. $223K it probably a couple hours take for them.
TFA says she was with her supervisor. I wonder if it would have been different if one of them were alone when they found it.

No, but I do appreciate the irony of it all.

She'd be quite attractive if she possessed one quarter of a million dollars.
 
2013-11-21 07:13:18 AM
Before she returned the money the owner of Boomtown said "Rats."
 
2013-11-21 07:15:49 AM
I was going to ask if it was a 5 pound bag of $20s, since that is almost exactly how much money that would be.

CAN moment: my grandfather used to have a saying, where if anyone ever said that they wanted ___________ (fill in the blank with ridiculous demand), his polite reply was "and I want a five pound bag of twenties!". My dad loved that expression but always wondered exactly how much cash you would actually have, and one night a friend of his at a night depository at a bank let him find out. Turns out it was just over $200K. True story.

/mother always said "people in hell want ice water."

Cop math... a roll of quarters probably fell out and she estimate the value as a quarter of a million dollars...

I'm putting 40% odds that someone turned it in to her to return when he realized exactly how dead he'd get.

This.  I have the strangest urge to google 'probation officer porn'.

And by 'google', I mean, remember which directory it's in...

Doable. The neck thing may be a chemical burn or something. So what? What the fark are you doing with your life? She's working in one of the most crime ridden cities in the world. Give her a break.
 
2013-11-21 07:42:41 AM
Sorry fellas. We gotta test this money for drug residue. Oh noes! See that color? That means this money's been around drug people. Gotta confiscate it. Do you want me to test all that other money in your fancy SUV for drugs? No? then scoot.

Every cent of the $100k was accounted for by the drivers.

Hmmm I always say 10 pounds of 50's. Math was never my strong suit, so work with me here. Going by the original calculations, 5 pounds of 20's is roughly 200k (we'll just call it that for  the sake of convenience)

So a pound (1/5th) of that original amount is 40k, or 2000 bills per pound.
A pound of 50's would be 100K
10 pounds of 50's would be 1 mil
50 pounds = 5 mil

But my math teacher used to throw tennis balls at me, so you may want to double check my work.

According to everything I could find on the net, 1 bill, regardless of denomination, weighs 1 gram, which is the same as 1 raisin, so there could be some dried grapes and cocaine mixed up in there I think. So fark metric.

You'd probably be better off getting it in pennies, as a penny is worth .02 in metal.

You're not retarded, you can multiply by ten and then by 2.5. Go on, give it a shot.

I heard that the beautiful women in Louisiana are descended from the Acadian settlers, and that they are in fact a poor cousin to the original source of these beauty genes.

I guess what I'm saying is, have you ever spent an afternoon sitting at an outdoor cafe in downtown Montreal?

Given that it came from a casino?

Not a chance.  And I wouldn't feel even remotely bad about it.
