“Thinks he’s Robin Hood in reverse,” Dee said, as he and Ryo dragged their latest arrestee into the precinct. “Steals from the poor to give to the rich, namely himself.”
Stealing charity boxes might not seem a big deal to some people, and at first glance wouldn’t appear to a lucrative crime, but when they’d entered the thief’s swanky apartment with a warrant, they’d found over five hundred boxes he’d brought home and broken open, buckets of coins waiting to be sorted, and more already bagged up to be taken to the bank. All told, his haul was over fifteen grand, and that wasn’t including any money he’d already spent.
“Do you have any idea how much it costs to live in an apartment like that?” the thief whined. “My dad cut off my allowance! I had to get money for the rent from somewhere or I’d have been kicked out!”
“Boo hoo, poor you.” Dee shoved the kid ahead of him. “Welp, you won’t have to worry about rent where you’re goin’,” he smirked. “You’ll be fed and clothed too, on the state. Only thing won’t be free is you, but I’m sure you’ll soon make some new friends.”
