I don't think it was a good idea to say he keeps a large amount of cash in is apartment along with his address.

Not a good idea? It was a stipid one. Anyone who knows this man and read this story will know his business. This man is bound to be a target for anothr break in, but the next one successful, simply because they know what to look for and what they should find.
