Default 40million Armed Robbery!

It's all over the news in England!

http://www.thestandard.com.hk/news_d...169&con_type=1

I thought the gang was cool at first (like Ocean's Eleven), but kidnapping the Depot Boss' wife and kids and threatening to kill them? That's just sick.

I'll never understand criminals like that.

They'll probably be facing charges of police impersonation as well as armed robbery... it ain't going to be pretty if the police catch them, let's put it that way.

Plus, they'll never be able to use it anyway really. If they tried to cash even small amounts into the bank, they'd get suspicious, and ring up the police.

Abroad, they wouldn't have much problems but its moving the money from here to there. And its heavy... your talking about 800,000 50 I think...notes if thats whats its in... that can't be light and definietly won't fit in a pocket.

Everybody says they'll be shipping it abroad and laundering it into off-shore accounts
