Now that's what I call a good bank robbery!
They should make a movie about it.
A crafty bank robber in America made a Thomas Crown style escape from the scene of his crime by recruiting a crowd of unsuspecting identically-dressed accomplices on the internet. King5.com reports that the well-organised villain struck as an armoured van was picking up cash from the a Bank of America branch in Monroe, …
You know, every now and then someone breaks the law in a way that makes you want to congratulate them.
He's managed to wander off with a large wadge of cash without doing anyone any serious harm (pepper spray? really? in a country where every yahoo has a gun?) and used gullible stooges to help him get away in an escape worthy of an Ealing comedy...
Full marks that man.
Can't say I approve of the robbing of a bank, however no-one got seriously hurt (aside from the pepper sprayed guard) and the escapade sounds so much like a film that you can't help but smile a little at the guys planning/ sense of humour/ use of tech/ and balls at doing this.
Topped off by the floating down the river (the only bit that seems rather counter-productive) which I would have thought would been better done as either a canoist or disguised as a branch or something.
PH since she knows a thing or two about balls.
Sheer, unadulterated genius.
I'm very sorry to potentially ruin a good story, but I do have to ask, though... if they lost track of him, how do they know he escaped down the river in an inner tube?
It's a bit like the story of the guy who died of fright in his sleep after dreaming of a lion.
The cops thought they'd collared the lad but he had an alibi: A big boy did it and ran away.
The well insured bank owners weren't too worried about the event saying "It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here"
Mine's the one with the eclectic Baurheid reading material and the St Mirren season ticket.
