from CBS Atlanta:
The man who walked into Empire Jewelers thought he was about to get paid, but instead all he collected was a one-way free ticket to jail.
Police credit the owner of Empire Jewelers, Glenn Easterwood, with apprehending the suspect, who Douglasville police would not identify pending the outcome of their investigation.
“He comes in with a backpack, takes out a Kroger grocery bag and it is half deep with one-ounce gold coins,” Easterwood said. “I questioned him about where did you get them, how did you come about owning these coins, and he said he inherited them. He changed his story a couple times and I knew something was up.”
Police said the loot, which ranged from gold coins, silver coins and platinum bars, were stolen from a Carroll County home last Friday.
