sounds fishy ....

Going outside at 3:30 am is non-Kosher enough, but to do so with a wad of cash in one's pocket? A bit unusual, dontcha think?

It doesn't surprise me that

It doesn't surprise me that he was smoking at that hour, but I was thinking along the same lines as you in regards to the money he had with him.

Wrong time zone

You have to set your watch to hood time and then you will see that 3:30am is akin to 12 noon.
