“I pulled in this small town and looked around for a mark…”

"I pulled in this small town and looked around for a mark...""…Only thing that looked good was the local poolroom but the box (safe) sat right in the front window.

While walking down the street I saw a wrecker and I went to the poolroom and put a chain around the box and my partner backed the wrecker up to the window and I hooked the chain onto the cable of the wrecker. It was a nice score, too."

From Boxman: A Professional Thief’s Journey by William J Chambliss
