Man Steals 10,000 Pounds of Quarters from Parking Meters

An Albany parking meter repair man stole $210,000 worth of quarters from old parking meters he rigged, which he says he used to fund a gambling addiction. The city’s parking commissioner noticed something was amiss when he noticed that the digital pay stations were making a lot more money than the quarter-fed machines. I’m bracing myself next for a story about a 14-year-old hacker who figured out how scrape credit card information from the digital machines.
