A Connecticut man has been arrested for trying to start a hedge fund—five cents at a time.
Police in West Hartford said that Brent Goggins was “going door-to-door collecting cans because he was using them to get money to start a hedge fund.” Unsurprisingly, the people of Fenwood and Exeter avenues and Carol Road were suspicious, and alerted police.
Goggins, 32, was charged with soliciting without a permit. It’s not his first run-in with the law; he pleaded guilty to resisting arrest in 2007.
Speaking of resisting arrest, Goggins’ collar came with a bonus for law enforcement: He was knocking on doors with one Charles Cravish. Cravish, it turns out, is a fugitive, having been charged with resisting arrest in Florida.
Goggins was released on $100 bond, posted by his girlfriend despite the fact that Goggins and Cravish were using her car for their caper and got it towed. Cravish faces extradition to Florida.
