Some say modern culture has shed some of the creative flair past generations once exuded. Though the point is arguable, it seems some modern day thieves may be guilty of lacking creativity.
In a crime that was clearly concocted within moments of its occurrence, a Milwaukee man demonstrated how one turns anti-freeze into cash.
At roughly 6:42 p.m. Sunday, a Milwaukee man walked into the BP gas station on Appleton Avenue and returned a bottle of anti-freeze. The clerk, who claimed returns are incredibly rare, returned the man’s money despite his suspicions.
The clerk called police after, and they viewed surveillance footage to reach the bottom of the crime.
How did he do it?
The man simply walked into the store, picked up a 2-gallon jug of anti-freeze, and returned it for cash. The man left the scene in a vehicle long before police arrived.
