PROVIDENCE — The Cadillac Lounge has its routine down pat: Each Monday, management makes a trip to the bank to get thousands of one-dollar bills. As the week goes on, the Providence strip club will gradually trade all of them for larger bills from customers who want to tip the dancers. This Monday was no different. Then, just as the strip club was preparing to open for the evening, an armed robber walked in and demanded that the manager hand over the $22,000 in ones that were in the safe, according to owner Dick Shappy. "It's somebody who knew our routine," Shappy said on Monday night.

"And I said, 'You what?'" The manager was counting cash when the robber walked in, Shappy said: "He had about $3,500, we’re thinking, in his hand."
