A financial genius from Florida stole more than $30,000 in rare coins and cashed them in for a fraction of their value at change machines at area grocery stores.

Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said Shane Anthony Mele, 40, stole the rare presidential coins, valued at $1,000 each, the Palm Beach Post reports. 

Mele sold some of the coins to a pawn shop for $4,000, then exchanged the majority of them through CoinStar change machines at grocery stores, which would only give face value for them, a fraction of they are worth.

Other good business ideas he might consider investing in when he gets out of prison are BitCoin, Lehman Brothers stocks and Microsoft Zune 2. All are guaranteed to quadruple his money.
