'Lucky Thief' Casually Walks Off with $1.6m Pot of Gold in Broad Daylight

Quote:
An opportunistic thief stole a bucket of gold flakes worth $1.6m (£1.2m) from the back of an armoured vehicle in New York, police say.

Newly-released CCTV footage shows the moment the wanted suspect calmly walked off with the the bucket of gold in Manhattan on September 29.

An armoured truck company making a pick-up discovered that a 5 gallon aluminum pail weighing 86 pounds containing gold flakes (valued at 1.6 million dollars) was stolen from the rear of their armoured truck,” the New York Police Department(NYPD) said in a statement.

“The unidentified individual is then seen lifting the 5 gallon pail from the truck and fleeing East bound on West 48 Street toward Third Avenue.”

Police say the gold flakes were swiped when a guard briefly went to retrieve his mobile phone from the front of the vehicle.

“I think he just saw an opportunity, took the pail and walked off,” said NYPD Detective Martin Pastor.

He told: “I think when the lucky charm opened up the bucket, he seen the rainbow and seen the gold.”

In the clip, the man appears to struggle with the weight of the bucket before getting into a white van.

The suspect is believed to be hiding out in Florida.

Every time I see armoured trucks I always look for an opportunity like this.

Reminds me of the people who have money or drugs wash ashore or buried in their yard.


/tips hat to the guy

Gold is easy to sell and if he is in Florida it is very easy just hit a big flea market and they have gold buyers handing out cash right there and once they get to know you a bit they will meet in private for larger deals. Also coin and jewelry dealers tend to buy metals with no questions asked because they aren't regulated or watched by the cops like pawnbrokers are.

I really doubt most white guys in Florida would recognize that guy after watching the video they would have to know the guy before they saw the video to recognize him.

Whole story sounds fishy to me I don't buy this guy knowing to steal that metal bucket unless he had inside information and knew the guard was going to turn a blind eye and let him climb over the noisy metal lift and drag a 90-pound bucket off the truck.
