    Watch Thief Grab 86-Pound Bucket Of Gold Flakes Worth $1.6 Million From
    Armored Truck In Bustling Midtown Manhattan

    A busy street in Manhattan
    <http://www.inquisitr.com/3759958/wa...-armored-truck-in-bustling-midtown-manhattan/>

    On Tuesday, the New York Police Department released startling security
    footage showing the moment that a daring thief stole a bucket containing
    gold flakes valued at $1.6 million from the back of an armored vehicle
    parked on a street in bustling midtown Manhattan.

    The brazen thief took advantage of a 20-second window of distraction
    when security guards were not looking, grabbing the pot of gold from the
    back of an armored truck operated by a private security company.

    Police released the surveillance footage showing the man stealing the
    five-gallon aluminum bucket of gold from the back of the armored truck
    in the hope of obtaining information that could lead to the arrest of
    the man and the recovery of the loot.

    The video shows the thief hauling the heavy bucket off the back of the
    armored truck parked on a busy street in broad daylight. He made his
    move after a security guard left his position for only a few seconds to
    fetch his cell phone. He picked up the black bucket from the back of the
    truck and then walked off calmly but struggling with the heavy pot of gold.

    The incident happened at about 4:30 p.m. on September 29 on West 48th
    Street and Fifth Avenue, police said, according
    <http://abcnews.go.com/US/man-caught-stealing-real-life-pot-gold-worth/story?id=43872593> to /ABC News/.

    WANTED: Male Hispanic 5’6”, 150lbs, 50-60y/o for burglary in Midtown

    Surveillance footage shows the man loitering around the vicinity of the truck with a bag on his back. He walks past the truck repeatedly, keeping watch.

    One of the guards leaves the side of the truck apparently to make another pickup while his mate walks to the front seat of the truck to retrieve his cell phone.

    The thief moves quickly and expertly. He walks up to the open back of the truck and looks inside briefly before lifting the bucket. He walks hurriedly, and it is clear from the footage that he is having considerable difficulty lifting the heavy pot of loot.

    The video shows the man, believed to be aged between 50 and 60, struggling to lift the bucket.

    Who leaves an armored car filled with millions of dollars of gold
    unattended? The guy in our story. Gold = GONE. Surveillance vid on

    He sets the bucket down on the sidewalk for a brief rest after carrying
    it for some time. He eventually jumps into a van at 49th Street and
    Third Avenue, according
    <http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/loca...rmored-Truck-Midtown-Manhattan-403646516.html>
    to NBC 4 New York.

    NYPD said it took the thief about an hour to carry the gold over a
    distance that would normally take about 10 minutes.

    “Anyone with information in regards to the alleged theft is asked to
    call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or
    1-888-57-PISTA (for Spanish). All calls are kept strictly
    confidential. The public can also submit tips at Crime Stoppers’
    website at www.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.com or by texting 274637(CRIMES)
    and entering TIP577.”

    “An armored 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 armored truck,” the
    New York Police Department (NYPD) said in a statement, according
    <http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/30/lucky-thief-casually-walks-16m-pot-gold-broad-daylight/> to the /Telegraph/.

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

    Police described the thief as male, Hispanic, about five feet six inches
    tall, 150 pounds, and between 50- and 60-years-old. He was wearing a
    black vest, a green shirt, and blue jeans, according to the NYPD news
    release.

    “I think he just saw an opportunity, took the pail and walked off,” NYPD
    Detective Martin Pastor told /NBC New York/. “I think when the lucky
    charm opened up the bucket, he seen the rainbow and seen the gold.”

    New York Police DepartmentNYPD is searching for a man believed to have
    stolen gold worth $1.6 million from the back of an armored truck

    Police said it is possible that the thief was not aware of what was
    inside the bucket at the time he stole it from behind the truck.

    Investigators believe he could be hiding out with the loot in Orlando or
    Miami.

    It was not clear who owned the missing bucket of gold flakes, but the
    area in New York where it was stolen is the city's jewelry district.

    That story is in all the NY papers; one of them said it took the guy an hour to walk 1/2 mile because the bucket was so heavy.

    Last thing I read about it was they think he is headed to Orlando. I have no idea why they think that but maybe he can stop for a beer and do some fishing at my place on the way down.

    LUCKY CHARMS :D seriously :p it's a bucket full of gold!

    I don't know what "gold flakes" are or why they're in a bucket -- but it's all very fairy tale-like. Who wouldn't steal that? :p

    If he's Hispanic he's probably on his way to Mexico, because he'll fit in and can sell it knowing the language.

    But if I were him I would just go to some unknown state where everything is calm, like Arkansaw or some shiz like that, then spend the next 12 months melting the gold little by little and selling it on eBay in trinket form. Or selling it to pawn shops in trinket-form.

    Hmm now that I think about it htat's kinda hard to do :p 1.6 million... selling it $200 a piece... too long, too hard. 100 pieces is only $20,000 :(

    That gold is probably melted down already and will never be seen again.
