Weak Strong Box
In the afternoon of Tuesday, April 24, a 74-year-old man discovered that his hoard of cash was missing from his residence on W. 65th St. He had kept the money locked in a metal box in a wall behind the closet. He told police that only he held the key to the box. The only other person with an apartment key was the woman with whom he had shared the apartment for five years. The man said that he alone knew of the money and its secret location, and the last time he checked it was about a year before. No arrests have been made. The amount stolen was $620,000 in Euros and $400,000 in U.S. cash. Ouch!
