    Just a common thief, a dime a dozen. Would be interesting to know what he stole and how he did it.

    Sometimes I think that animals are smarter than humans, animals would never allow the dumbest one to lead the pack

    Apparently it was a few to several $20 gold pieces from what I was able to glean from others. When he was apprehended a few of them went scattering on the floor supposedly.

    I do wonder how this guy got several coins like that. He doesn't look that smart, would be surprised if he could employ stealth. Did he just grab-and-run ?

    Here's the story from Double D's 2024 Fun Report:

    There was an interesting spectacle that many have heard about. I was at the booth when Paul got a text from Ashley that she was stuck in the bathroom because someone was being arrested right there. David and I rushed over there to catch the action. Security had a middle-aged pale gentleman pinned against the wall, he was resisting arrest and they were about to make him before they finally got him in cuffs and walked him out, followed by a round of applause from the crowd of observers. As the crowd dissipated, I saw the security guard wiping a small amount of blood off his arm and I yelled at him to "Rub some dirt on it!" lol. I got to talking with him and he told me what happened. This guy and a woman (wife?) were looking at jewelry at one of the tables and I guess she had run a slight of hand distraction while he made off with 3 gold rings. When security found him he had thrown the rings, but they were later all recovered and returned to the dealer.

    To be fair, maybe that's all he knows how to do. In which case, who are we to condemn him? I mean, some of us are coin dealers and we don't give them a hard time, right?

    From what I can gather, he has been arrested 3 times ( including this one) so it doesn’t appear that he knows how to do this, very well😂
    Perhaps it’s time for him to consider a ‘career change.’😉
