    Alright lads, remember that bank robberies and gold-digger girlfriends are a bad mix... Read this in the subway this morning, couldn't believe it:


    A man who spent almost 20 years on the run in the US has been jailed for five years for stealing a security van containing £1.2m in Suffolk.
    Eddie Maher, 57, had been wanted by police since the Securicor van he was driving disappeared from outside Lloyds Bank, Felixstowe, on 22 January 1993.
    He was arrested in Missouri in February 2012.




    An extraordinary aspect of this case is Mr Maher's daughter-in-law had originally been the partner of his son Lee's best friend.
    "Lee won a lot of money on the lottery and she left her partner to marry Lee. When the money ran out, she did a little research on Google on the name Maher and found out he was wanted for the theft back in 1993.


    She heard that there was a reward and she went to the federal authorities."

    I'd do 5 years for 1.2 million GBP

    The real question is would you marry your best friend's GF if she left him just when you win the lottery... and your dad robbed a bank 20 years ago??

    Oh man, escape the feds for 20 years and get turned in by your daughter in law for the cash reward.. lol, what a way to go
