July 14, 2007

” Police in Derry, Pennsylvania are baffled by a June ATM robbery in which an unidentified man wearing flip flops and shorts strolled into Mastrorocco’s Market and reprogrammed the cash machine to think it was dispensing dollar bills instead of twenties. Along with a female accomplice, the crook netted $1,540 in two visits on June 19 and 20, according to store owner Vince Mastrorocco. “They came in, they hit me the first day — a man and a woman — and they cleaned me out,” Mastrorocco told THREAT LEVEL. “Then they came back the next day and cleaned me out again.””
