Coco Theft


Stopped and had a couple beers at Coco's, (Coco's Corner, Gonzaga/Chapala road), a few days ago. Poor guy said he was robbed.
I regret not writing down everything the guy entered in his log book there, truthful or not. According to Coco, a tall German guy on a motorbike on his way to Argentina stole 67,000 pesos out of the drawer while Coco wheeled out of the room to get a beer. He had been saving for many months to re-do his roof which is in need of re-build. He was happy his truck was full of gas, he was able to drive to San Felipe and call on some friends for a loan and supplies.

What kind of scumbag steals from a kind old guy without legs in a wheel chair? He asked if I could get the word out.

Needless to say we left Coco with a huge tip, please stop and give him some business, and keep your eyes out for the culprit.

Never quick enough unfortunately, but nice to see in your own lifetime. This is where true faith begins, knowing what goes around comes around.

That being said, WTF is Coco doing with FOUR THOUSAND BUCKS in an unlocked and unattended drawer??????? :?:

That's a hit just waiting to happen... tough lesson learned.

I know Coco, numerous times to sit and chat, also away from his home on other occasions.
Something doesn't smell well in this story.
Makes absolutely no sense to leave that kind of money, especially in pesos it would be quite an imposing pile.
And, out front? Not in back? Not under some kind of lockup?
I make no accusations, nor even insinuations,
just working the "smell test" on this one and I smell fish....

Coco is quite the dirty ole man. Last time we were there in July he was telling some very tall tales about all the women he watched (and more) take off their panties to place in his rafters.

Twice per year this guy spins a yarn, a tale of woe, and asks for donations. He’s a grifter/panhandler.

Stunning.....a man who has provided travelers with a rest stop, cold beer, a few stories for years and years.….

Is now pounded and flamed, he is the culprit for not hiding his stash better.
Never mind the low life slime that supposedly snatched his stash.
Just blame the victim.

For Christs sake......the man has no legs, lives in the desolate desert, a long way for any services on a rough road

And the Goat.....the champion of all "leave a big tip, they are poor" is now flaming a man for asking for a donation....as some "grifter/panhandler"
Jerk is too kind.

I am saying there probably never was any money stolen, no German bandito - the story of theft may just be a con job on you softies with a wad of dollars in your pocket.

Well, there are enough of us that someone will see the German, tall dude, on his bike heading to Argentina somewhere...if he exists. And if he does, shame on him.

And said drawer was in easy reach of a guy he left alone? Most people keep their valuables tucked away in a dark corner in the back under a bunch of other stuff. Some lessons are harder than others.

Could he have alerted his many Chingos up and down the road to be on the lookout for the culprit?
