First Stop: Gun Store. Second Stop: Cash Store


Police in Caldwell are on the trail of a man who takes labels too literally. This enterprising consumer walked into a Cash Store on Cleveland Boulevard on Saturday morning and did exactly what the commercials promised: He got cash quickly and without a credit check. Amazingly, the man was also able to avoid the usual high interest rates and penalty fees, since he provided the clerk what is perhaps history's most effective form of collateral: fear of getting plugged. The customer flashed a gun, did the deal and fled--and he even got to keep his car.
