Thefts in the Hudson Valley
It's not a particularly good thing to say, but, the Hudson Valley and local businesses are not strangers to incidents of theft. One search on our websites of the word "theft" will find you a plethora of different cases that we have reported on.
With that being said, this incident is kind of intriguing to me. Maybe it's because I'm someone who never could master the art of juggling, or maybe it could be that I'm someone who could just be prone to falling for these kinds of tricks? It's probably more likely that this person may have just watched "Now You See Me" or may be she watched a Chris Angel marathon, maybe you could even call it dumb luck.
As with most cases like this though, luck eventually runs out.
