If you're going to go to all this trouble, 1) don't send a thank you card to the guys who made your mask and 2) don't start splashing around cash.

I'm amazed that guys who had the ability to plan something that intricate couldn't hold it together enough to avoid such common mistakes like bragging and blowing cash around.

I don't get how sending the endorsement alerted the cops. Were the cops monitoring all emails to special FX companies in case the 3 white robbers were black and using sophisticated disguises?

I wonder if it coincided with one of the CFX employees seeing "pictures of the suspects" on CNN or an internet news story.

Meanwhile, the crooks began blowing their $200,000 windfall on pricey Gucci and Louis Vuitton threads, authorities said. One member of the crew even forked over $11,000 for Rolex watch.
 

I have a feeling that many frowns will befall these shenanigans.

Didn't that kind of rich used to have a common name? I seem to remember something that flowed off the tongue and was very descriptive.

Why? Pay-o-Matic? With all the planning, why not a classy joint? They probably could have sold the movie rights for knocking off a casino for more than they got.

"Idiots" might be the word you are looking for. That or "nouveau riche," which is basically the same.

It's a good idea, since basic race, complexion, and general build (fat, skinny, etc) are basically the only things that eye-witnesses every get anywhere even close to correct.

Obviously they neglected some other fairly significant operational security issues, though, given how fast they were caught and prosecuted.  Most notably the bit where you don't start spending 100k$ a month on an apparent 20k$/year income.

200K cash is a nice little haul, considering the avg bank robber nets less than 3K.


They were stupid asses with the money though.  Should have just took off for a few years.  61K cash can get you setup somewhere small for a year.

That was my first question too, but it looks like the cops learned they were masks early on. According to this, they got a tip from someone. Which goes to show that any good plan may fall apart when you tell someone untrustworthy, and then flaunt your new Rolex and Gucci stuff in front of them.

I'd actually be really intrigued to see statistics of heist perpetrators who took their scores, invested them wisely (or at least hid it away and only spent it in bits and bobs), and lived a quiet life. Obviously there are lots of factors involved (not the least of which is the requirement to launder said money), but it'd still be interesting. I would think that percentage of "thoughtful spenders" would rise alongside the intricacy and size of the heist - though in keeping with that I would think that these guys would have at least spent a  bitless stupidly after what was a pretty decently sophisticated robbery.

I'm guessing they were arrested for the large cash expenditures that could probably be traced back to the bank heist.  After that, they probably just assumed they had some way of disguising themselves and checked their emails.  The story doesn't have enough details.

FTFA: The major break in the case came after police discovered an e-mail from Byam to CFX offering a hearty endorsement after the robbery, according to police.

Okay.... but what caused the police to suspect Byam in the first place?

Thanks..... those articles were much more informative. Just goes to show, keep your damn mouth shut if you want to get away with shiat.

This used to happen all the time in the south in the early to mid century. Whites would do the crimes but they always managed to pin it on black guys.
