All of these valid questions are being posed by social media users who are looking to make sense out of the search for a man who allegedly made off with a significant chunk of change.

The incident reportedly occurred at the Margartaville Casino in Bossier City, Louisiana. Authorities there say that the suspect met up with the victim at the front desk of the casino, where they both went to the victim's room. From there, the suspect was spotted on surveillance camera leaving the victim's room whilst wearing the coat in question.

The report says that police noted the coat had $45,000 in the pocket.

There are many valid questions here, many of which I'm assuming authorities are also curious about. Some pointed out that finding a little extra money in your pocket every now and then can be quite a treat.

I think I am going to have to agree with the commenters on this one. This story does not make much sense, especially because it seems as though the suspect and victim knew each other to a certain extent. They at least knew each other well enough to be in the same room together.

As of now, there is a man being sought by the Bossier City Police. That man may or may not have gambled away the $45,000 pocket-change by now. We will have to circle back if anything else comes of this story, which falls just shy of an Oceans 11 plot line.
