Just as amazing as the scope and daring of these crimes is how quickly they were solved.
Crime truly doesn't pay. I suspect that there's a reason for this. For example, there is a student in my class who told me that his life goal is to form a team, perhaps in montage, and then perform heists. I suspect that the urge to form teams, in a montage, and then perform heists, and then brag about it, is the down fall of the criminals.
