Two Charged with Clogging, Stealing from AC Expressway Coin Basket. (The Best-Laid Plans. . . .)

The Press of Atlantic City reports, “An Atlantic City man and woman were charged with tampering with and stealing toll money, state police said Monday [November 7].” The report adds that the pair “allegedly modified the toll basket by stuffing it with material to prevent coins from going in, and later returned to remove accumulated coins. The suspects also stole coins from the ground at the toll plaza, state police said.” Finally, and this is a shocker, the report notes that the culprits’ actions “were captured on surveillance footage. . . .”
