AUSTRALIAN MINT WORKER CONVICTED IN COIN THEFT

Some of the West Point Mint's heavy security might have come in
handy down under.  Philip Mernick writes: "Here is the trial verdict
on the Australian Mint worker who "filled his boots"."

"William Bosia Grzeskowiak was jailed for three years for stealing
A$135,000 ($100,000) in new two-dollar coins over a 10 month period
up to February 2006.

He avoided detection by hiding the coins in his steel-tipped boots,
sometimes putting 150 coins in each."

[He walked like the Frankenstein monster and jingled a bit, but I
guess that wasn't enough out of the ordinary to call for a search.
