Covelli robber got $80K; still at large

Published: Wed, February 10, 2010 @ 5:42 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The armed robber who held up an employee for the Covelli Centre’s food and drink vendor got away with about $80,000, and is still at large.

The amount of money taken from the Boston Culinary Group’s office manager during the Jan. 26 robbery was confirmed today by Youngstown Police Chief Jimmy Hughes.

Police are still interviewing people and following up on leads, but no arrest has been made, Hughes said. He declined to discuss the leads in the ongoing investigation.

When asked if the robbery could have involved Boston Culinary employees, Hughes said, “It’s always a possibility it’s an inside job. That’s been my experience [with robberies such as this]. But that’s not to say what happened in this case.”

Freaking morons.

It took them this long to say that large amount of money was stolen. They aren't doing things right down there at all. Everynight some amounts of money should be placed in a special account that much money should never be in that place. Than at that they didn't even know how much money was stolen when this incident first happened and it took until now for them to have the amount. Whoever is in charge of handling the finances should know how much money they have in the office and in the bank account.

Do we actually believe that $80,000 was on hand to be stolen? Had there just been an event at the center? Is there any proof that this much money was available, or is someone just saying so? You can bet that whatever insurance company may be on the line for this money will be asking very tough questions. It wouldn't be the first time someone made a claim of a robbery, for the insurance money. I'm not saying that this is necessarily happening here; but it is a distinct possibility. Interesting case.
