Let's face it. If you have the brains to get into the bank of england and steal that much then you're gonna know how to get rid of it.
By the time the staff untied themselves, raised the alarm, the police arrived, went 'wtf?!?', called the one with the brain and figured the magnitude of what had happened, spread the word to relevant authorities (and all associated paperwork/formalities) etc...
...they could have easily been halfway through the Eurostar ride to Paris, in a light aircraft to anywhere or heading in 8 different directions by road.
aparrently the women that was caught tried to deposit £6000 in her bank account and the cash she wanted to deposit still had "Tonbridge Branch" labels on it. honestly one of the worlds dumbest criminals. i no this cause my dads on the flying squad in the met. police. and their told anything which happens in the country involved with armed robberys before the press knows
Why didnt they fire bomb the complex lockup to remove evidence but making sure the hostages were outside and a container ship to transport money to country with non-extradition rights!
Because fire-bombing the complex would have alerted people to the robbery quicker, i.e., they would have discovered the blaze, then the people who worked there would be able to inform the authorities, rather than them having the several hours they did.
Container ships are show and highly trackable, and would take a long time to load up and ship out, therefore inefficient.
