A storefront display filled with $50 in shiny silver coins proved too much temptation for a robber in Duluth. The display was in Fred Pitsch's Corner Shoe Store and was advertising the Duluth Brewery's Lucky Key Contest. Police arrested a suspect the next day after getting reports of him spending 50¢ coins liberally around town. He still had 80 of them in his pockets when he was taken in. From the Chippewa Herald Telegram of Chippewa Falls, WI.
