Why do people keep so much ca$h at home?

They probably keep the cash in case the banks close unexpectedly or for emergencies ... Sounds like these are inside jobs though!

I agree with Kt this sounds like these are inside jobs...Someone knows the victim(s). The victim(s) talked about what was in those safes in order for their homes to be burlgarized without a doubt. Not everyone is your friend including relatives.

You have to be incredibly naive to keep $20K in a safe at home and not arm your alarm system. Sounds Darwinian...

Some Mountain Viewians don't pay taxes, since they are here illegally. The Day Worker Center works on a cash only basis. Palo Altans that frequent the joint should know that.

Well there are those people that don't pay taxes all over the world but I do know what you mean...
