Safecracking - you win some, you lose some

From the NY Post:

Talk about bad luck.

Dimwitted thieves who cut holes in the rooftop of a Flushing OTB to get inside left empty-handed after they were unable to open the safe, police sources said.

The crooks cut three holes in the roof of the building on Roosevelt Avenue near Union Street at 3:50 a.m. Sunday and roped down, the sources said.

They snipped the alarm and phone lines, but apparently couldn't open the safe containing $50,000.

Police recovered a crowbar and ladder at the scene, and are hunting the suspects.

That's a lot of dough.

Cops are looking for the creeps who stole more than $7,100 from an Ozone Park pizza shop after climbing into the store through a rear exhaust vent, police sources said.

The owner of Pizza Port at Lefferts Boulevard and 135th Avenue discovered the money missing at 11 a.m. Sunday. It's unclear when the heist took place.

The crooks snatched more than $100 from the register and swiped another $7,000 from the safe in the basement, the sources said.

Cops are hunting the suspects.

Why didn't they just take the grease while they were there?

I hope they left a franc in the tip jar!

Jesus Christ, George, for an atheist you're doing a lousy job!

With Christopher Hitchens sick, you're our only hope!

La graisse est le mot!
