I seem to have written a lot about bank robbers lately, but there’s a pretty good reason for that. Bank robbers are idiots.
These guys in Albania, though, at least got a few things right. First, they didn’t walk into a bank in broad daylight and stick a gun in a teller’s face. The only thing that’s going to get you is whatever money is in the drawer, possibly some kind of dye packet to make that money useless anyhow, and a silent alarm to bring the cops down on your ass in short order. Neither did they do something really dumb, like try to force a teller to open the vault.
Instead, they rented a shop above the bank and tried to drill into the vault from above. Yeah, their dumb mistake was emulating the plot of a Woody Allen movie. And they would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for you meddling kids! I mean… if they hadn’t made so friggin much noise that the cops were alerted to their scheme and busted them.
So, in the end, these guys ended up just like pretty much all bank robbers. Good job, assholes.
