FBI Arrests Suspect in Oakland Coliseum Theft

July 28, 1991

IRVING, Texas (AP) _ FBI agents Saturday arrested a man suspected of stealing more than $700,000 from concessions he managed at Oakland Coliseum in California.

Thomas Hagins, 29, was arrested as returned to a hotel from a topless bar in Irving, FBI Special Agent Douglas Perez said.

Hagins allegedly stole money from food and souvenirs sold during a four- game baseball series a week ago.

Agents seized four boxes they believe are full of cash Hagins allegedly removed from a safe and shipped to a bus station in Dallas, Perez said.

The FBI had said that shortly before the Coliseum heist Hagins had asked co-workers about how to slip quietly into Mexico.

Hagins was being held without bond at the Dallas County Jail on a federal warrant charging unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
