“Slight brouhaha?” Looks like Marlins attempted theft

Buried in a story on page 3b in Friday’s Herald is something that should have been on the crime blotter and prominently displayed.

Seems pretty clear to me from the last paragraph that the Marlins and their coconspirators were planning a heist of $4.1 million. Call it daylight robbery, to be carried out in the glare of the lights at a city commission meeting. Simply ask for $4.1 million even though it “wasn’t needed,” in the phrase of the blasé Herald reporter, who must get this all the time at city meetings. Man, then that money is gone, gone, gone.
