Outsourcing employees commit heist

I am sure there is nothing funny about this story in Newsday to the folks who had their money stolen. But read the first and last paragraphs of the story (emphasis mine).
PUNE, India -- Police have arrested 16 people in western India for allegedly cheating four Citibank customers out of nearly $350,000, a police officer said Saturday.
The suspects spent some of the money buying expensive cars, jewelry and visiting night spots, the Indian Express newspaper reported Saturday. At least $44,320 was recovered, a public prosecutor said.

So 16 guys bought cars, jewelry, etc. The police have recovered 12 percent of the lost money and the article says "spent some of the money". I bet the folks who lost their money would use the phrase "spent most of the money".
