  • AT THE IMMEDIATE CONCLUSION OF DEATH IN PARADISE 

THE CASE OF THE CLINKING BRASSIERES - A 1950's theft ring in which women who worked in the counting room of Miami's Southern Bell Telephone Company would stash rolls of quarters in their bra.  The money was stolen before it was placed in coin counting machines, which made it almost impossible to determine how much had been taken.  Southern Bell was embarrassed and reluctant to press charges.  After an audit, it was estimated that $100,000 in quarters was taken from The Southern Bell Telephone Company.  News of this scandal spread like wildfire and it became nationally known as the "Case of The Clinking Brassieres".
