The shop owner had captured the burglary on CCTV, so he took the film to the police, who are now trying to capture the burglar and lock him up.

150 phones at, lets say conservatively, an average of $250, so that's $37500 plus $30,000 cash = quite a nice score.

With that kind of value on site you'd think they would have an alarm system or maybe a security guard there at night. Or at least a decent safe for the cash.

Can you buy insurance for this kind of risk here? If so, maybe they have discovered insurance fraud. $30k in cash is a bit suspicious in itself...

I notice the burglar isn't wearing gloves. Hasn't he heard of fingerprints?

I love it when Brody forgets to read the original posting date! :D

Anyway, I had only been in the country just over one year and thought that this was a normal country. I am now a fully paid up member of the cynical expat club.

Ha, you got me. I rarely assume that someone bumps a 2 year old thread with some nothing comment. I wonder why Matty9999 does this?

I figured you missed the date, and it's not often you give someone such an open goal, and I couldn't resist :D

As for why Matty9999 does it, I'm baffled too. How many pages do you have to go back to find a April 2019 news post???

Usually zero, they come up in the Similar Topics section at the bottom of each thread.
