Best not to announce when you’re cashed up

A farming couple’s plan to buy a tractor went up in smoke on Saturday after the money for the purchase was stolen the day after it was borrowed.

Police suspect that the elderly couple had let word slip that they had borrowed $3,371 from the bank the day before.

Why else would four masked men choose the next night to burst into their home with a rifle and demand the money? The victims tried to feign ignorance, but the thieves found the cash in a plastic bag before bolting into the forest. NOKORWAT
