Lucid Intent? No

I was in San Antonio and outside a courthouse. I had to take a bus, but I had no money at all. I even rummaged through my pockets for quarters. My friend Daniel is boarding the bus. I ask if he can spot me some money to ride, but he says he can't. He boards, and I stay behind. I see some money stuck in the bill receiver, but no one else notices it. They just put their money in and get their bus passes.
The machine is odd. The money receiving portion is sunken in about a foot and has walls all around it. I assumed the walls were for security or privacy. When no one is around, I grab the money that's stuck to the machine. I assume the machine had accepted it but then spit it out. The bills were folded in half. It's $14,000 in cash. Most of it's $20 bills, but there are some $100s too. I don't want anyone to know I took it, so I put it in the machine. I assume it'll give me a $10,000 bill and some hundreds so I have fewer bills.
Instead, the machine spits out copper coins. It keeps spitting them out and fills that part of the machine. There are some separated areas in the sunken part of that machine, and those all fill up with these coins. They're not pennies; they're 100 percent copper and much shinier. I start pocketing them.
Then I see a folder on the counter this machine's attached to. It's a police file on the man who put all those bills in the machine. I turn the folder over so no one sees his name and makes the connection with the money I'm trying to steal.
A woman from the court talks to me, seemingly not noticing the coins I'm taking that are still filling up the machine. The mentions the man in the folder by name. That's when I get really nervous. I grab the folder when she's not looking and fold it in half. I slip it into a folder I suddenly have to hide it from her.
I don't think she knows about the folder. I think about what I'm going to do with these coins, and I'm upset I didn't get a $10,000 bill. I think about selling the coins for scrap. I know they're worth more than a penny, and maybe I can get close to the value of that money if I sell them.
