Cooper told law enforcement he was homeless and was trying to return to his family in Texas and that he had no ties to the Great Falls area.

Well, based on the mug shot, I've got some thoughts on why Mr. Cooper seems to have limited employment prospects.

Where exactly did the tripe that old people have blue hair ever come from?

The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Well, by the court maybe.

It's "blue rinse". a product that old women used to use on their grey hair. It left the hair grey, but eliminated the yellow and fading. I don't know if it's still popular now, but that's where the term "blue hairs" for old ladies came from.

/Wife was a hairdresser in the late 80s. She had lots of clients who were old ladies and they all loved their blue rinse.

I'm assuming you're under, say, 40?  Back in the day (50s, 60s, maybe 70s) that was the style.  Old women colored their hair blue.  My grandma had blue hair for a while.

My 5th grade teacher had blue hair.  It was a source of endless fascination to me.

Maybe the woman is in a nursing home and has no other place to keep her family heirlooms. Yes, a safety deposit box in a bank would be my choice for gold bars, but maybe she couldn't afford one big enough for all the silver.

I can't tell you how many times I have said "bahluue" like that guy. I don't know why it makes me laugh like that but it does...

"Among these items were numerous family heirlooms, including irreplaceable family documents, one-ounce gold bars, gold Escudos from a shipwreck, a bag of older silver coins, silver one-ounce round coins, silver bars and many other items of personal and sentimental significance."

1) For precious metals, it's one troy ounce, which is equal to 1.1 ounces.

2) You can have silver coins, which are backed by a government and have a face value and is considered legal tender (not that you'd want to use a silver troy ounce with a $1 face value as money). Silver rounds aren't legal tender, and are just silver.

3) American Silver Eagles are pretty cool coins.

At this time, very few of the stolen items have been recovered, and Cooper allegedly admitted that he steals in order to have a place to stay or to buy illegal drugs. Court documents state Cooper has prior arrests for drug possession, theft, trespass to vehicles, possession of burglary tools and deceptive practices.

Let's make all drugs legal. What could go wrong?!

If you keep gold escudos in a storage space instead of a safety deposit box, maybe you deserve to be robbed.

Much less, according to countries that have done so.

During the following days, the woman said her storage unit was broken into several more times.


The first time was just to case the joint.

And rob it a little.

Alright, stealing to have a roof over your head, or to feed a drug habit, (while not condoning) I can almost wrap my head around.  But if you're homeless and can't afford the drugs that you just can't live life without, but you have enough money to dye your hair any damn color your want....

I'm not saying blue is an expensive color, but priorities, man.
