Brevard Deputy Under Investigation For Thieving Nickels
This economic situation is so bad you really can't blame people for picking up spare change they find on the street. Unless that person is a cop on the scene of history's most bizarre nickel-related traffic disaster.
On September 17th a truck carrying $182,000 of nickels crashed on I-95 near Mims on its way to Miami, and spread thousands of the shiny coins across the highway. Now a Brevard County deputy is under investigation for taking nickels from the scene. Authorities won't say how much the deputy took, but one man was caught before hauling off $300 worth. That's 6000 Jeffersons.
