This little piggy went to market

What a haul to take these piggies to market.

Man accused of stealing 8 piggy banks from home

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Police said a 34-year-old man was charged with second-degree burglary after allegedly stealing eight piggy banks from a home, netting more than $2,700 in change.

Police said the man then went to a bank, where he spent more than half an hour standing at a coin-counting machine while the device tallied the money.

Police said the man, already on probation for first-degree burglary, then picked up his girlfriend and bought a coat, boots and shirts at Burlington Coat Factory.

Police found him after a neighbor saw a man leave with two large nylon bags and noted the plate number.
Police said the man may have lived with the victims in the past.
