vudukungfu: You can get away with 2, though.
hubiestubert: Hey, taking the whole thing would have been greedy, and you have to admire their restraint...
jshine: Ramming a crate with a forklift? Simple plans are the best plans, I suppose.
brantgoose: hubiestubert: Hey, taking the whole thing would have been greedy, and you have to admire their restraint...Very true. Pretty much what I was going to say.What a lot of amateur or unsuccessful crooks do is lose control. They try to steal the change as well as the banknotes. They see something much bigger and better and get distracted. And thus they get caught because they don't stick to the script: Quick in, out, with the loot you went to get and nothing but the loot you went to get.That's how supermarkets and shopping malls get you: they've got too damn much stuff. It's like a monkey paw trap--you can grab but you can't escape with what you grab because the jar opening is smaller than your fist full of loot.$1.2 million is still a pretty good day's work. If you have to leave behind $90 million or so, tough luck. You can fit $1.2 milllion in a briefcase, but $90 million would take several wheelbarrows.It may have been stupidity, it may have been discipline, but they got away with enough loot, and that is the main thing if you are planning a big heist.Entire corporations crash and burn because they try to do too much, to expand too fast. It's one of the commonest errors in business. You have to know how to be the right size. A mouse can not be scaled up to elephant size, and an elephant can not be scaled down to mouse size. They each have their own "right size" and constraints quickly change the rules of the game as volume, surface area, weight, food requirements, temperature, etc., follow different rules of scaling.
abhorrent1: That clever JFK heist of $1.2 million probably consisted of ramming a crate with a forkliftStandard practice at fedex freight. They don't steal anything, they do damage everything though.
Cork on Fork: It's funny... if my corporation had its own private jet (and all the big banks do, I'm sure) and I needed to move 100 million dollars, I wouldn't be sending it on a commercial airliner. That just seems to be asking for trouble.Load it on the Gulfstream with an armed guard or two, and skip all the airport workers who have to handle it.
GavinTheAlmighty: Fano: If you steal 93 million, they WILL find you."Unless they think you're already dead"
firstinitiallastname: "FBI agents assigned to the Newark field office were preparing to administer polygraph tests to airport workers..."I'd be surprised if this thief is still working at the airport after becoming an overnight millionaire
Another Government Employee: The problem now is: the serial numbers are likely recorded. So how do you do the laundry so none of the bill show up in circulation for a while?Broker a couple of drug deals?
