Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Police video released Tuesday shows a man brazenly swipe an 86-pound bucket of gold worth $1.6 million from the back of an unattended armored truck in Midtown before scampering away, NYPD officials said. The suspect first cased the open Loomis International truck as it parked outside 48 W. 48th St., near Sixth Avenue, while two guards went into a nearby building for another pickup about 4:30 p.m. Sept. 29, police said. Realizing no one was looking, he then grabbed a black 5-gallon bucket carrying 86 pounds of gold flakes bound for Ontario and ran away with it in his arms, police said.

Knew I wouldn't be the only one reminded of Groundhog Day.

There's a guy who "makes a living"* spending hours every day scouring the sidewalk in certain Manhatten neighborhoods. Looks for gold flakes and tiny precious stones. Scoops up all the dirt from the cracks and sifts through it when he gets home.

This guy just beat his all time earnings in a few minutes.

*he lives with his mom

86 lbs? This dude didn't scamper anywhere. Trudge is more like it. Try it, put about 90 odd pounds of anything in a bucket and try to run with it.

It's always an inside job.

He's doomed! Facial recognition software will lead to his demise. Why wasn't he wearing his Donald Trump Halloween mask?

"Facial recognition software will lead to his demise"

But he appears to be Asian, so he might get away with it...

This is pretty cool. Especially if it turns out to be an impulsive spur of the moment theft. Striking without hesitation when the iron is hot.
