Here's the most unreal story of the day. "A woman said she had $100,000 in cash stolen from her car late Saturday afternoon while the car was parked near the City Museum."
If that doesn't make shake your head in disbelief, I don't know what will. She explains why she had all this money in the car-"
The victim said she was driving cross-country — Philadelphia to Oregon — for a new job when she stopped in St. Louis. She said she stopped to visit the City Museum with her son from 3-5 p.m. Saturday. She said someone smashed the window and took her things.
She said she was attempting to by a home from an auction that required cash, but did not win, so she was left with $100,000 in cash. She said the money made up her life savings, and all of her clothes were taken in the incident."
Honestly? If I was traveling cross country with all that money, I'd never let it out of my sight and surely would not decide to do a tourist thing anywhere until that money was in a bank or locked up somewhere. Being from out of town she wouldn't realize that the City Museum is a hot spot for car break-ins but even so.
