2 dollar bill lucky

“Lucky” Two-dollar Bill

Posted August. 19, 2003 21:42,

A thief, who made off with valuables worth 400 million won in the empty houses around the luxury neighborhood, was arrested thanks to the ‘lucky’ two-dollar bill. This bill brought good luck to the police and victims but bad luck to the thief.

On Aug. 13, Lee, 38, was being questioned on charges of robbing the luxurious houses in Seongbuk-dong and Pyeongchang-dong in Seoul.

Lee was suspected of breaking to Chang’s house in Pyeongchang-dong at 1:30 p.m. on Jul. 31 and stealing jewels, a Mink Coat made in Italy, US$7,000 and 5 million won in cash. He was under probe on suspicions of robbing valuables worth 455 million won in this neighborhood on 5-8 counts in July and August.

He allegedly stole a Mink Coat, pearl necklaces, Rolex watches, a Saxophone, US dollars and euros.

The police asked the thief to confess his guilt, showing him screens of the CCTV that caught his car, but he denied the allegations.

However, when one of the victims made out his 2-dollar bill, Lee had to stop denying.

An American businessman gave Chang the 2-dollar bill as a present when he was on business trip to the U.S. And Chang wrote down the number of the bill in his diary.

Two-dollar bills were first issued in the U.S. in 1776. They are seen valuable because they were issued only 5-6 times until 1995. As there is a rumor that the two-dollar bills bring good luck, they are often given as a present in the American jet society. It is famous that actress Grace Kelly had the two-dollar bill in 1965 when Prince Rainier III of Monaco wooed her.

“I wanted to go to China with my family as soon as I have a lot of money,” Lee said. The “lucky” bill turned out to be bad luck to him.

Meanwhile, the two-dollar bill brought Chang good luck.

Lee has been in custody since Aug. 14.
