A couple of robbers decided to camouflage themselves with tin foil. Those watching the surveillance cameras quickly spotted them in their shiny disguises. Of course, they fled empty handed but they did leave a power drill behind. Police say they may have been acting as the lookouts in this attempted robbery.

A more successful robbery in an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood seemed to be similar to that of a Hollywood style bank heist. The thief used a combination of power tools and brute force to break into the HSBC bank without a trace. The thief's daring heist wasn't discovered until 8:30 AM the next morning when employees  found a hole in the ceiling of the vault and safety deposit boxes empty. The bank robber has still not been discovered.

Have you ever wanted the perfect photo? One tourist in the Leeward Islands went up against a plane to get a perfect picture of the plane landing. The man was almost hit by the landing plane but dodged it just in time to grab the perfect photo. He has spoken to media and says he was on a public road and there were others around.
