Alabama Man To Plead Guilty To Stealing 750,000 Quarters
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Stephen Dennis worked for the Brinks security company. That means he handled money. And he may have thought that nobody would miss a few stray quarters. The Alabama man pleaded guilty to stealing quarters, 750,000 quarters.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
That's like three quarters of a million quarters.
INSKEEP: That is $187,000 in other words. It's not clear how he did this, though he had access to bags of quarters worth $50,000 each. It's MORNING EDITION.
