Rocky and Mugsy Strike Again

A man robbed a Subway store in Olympia, Wash. Police found a suspect hiding behind a dumpster at a nearby store, who had a knife, $100 cash, a smartphone belonging to the restaurant clerk, a shopping cart loaded with “consumer goods,” and a white canvas bag. The bag, tied to the front of the man’s pants, had a large dollar sign on it. The man refused to give his name, but police were able to identify him from an earlier jail booking picture as David Lingafelter, 22. (MS/KOMO Seattle) ...Wasn’t it obvious? He’s Mister Moneybags.
