Nihon Shintaku Ginko Bank
When you’re disguised as a police officer, you are able to get away with quite a bit, such as pulling over a bank truck under suspicion of a bomb being planted underneath. The truck pulled over on December 10th, 1968 was carrying four passengers and approximately $817,000 when the local motorcycle cop pulled them over. The four passengers evacuated the truck and the officer went to work inspecting for the bomb. In a terrifying moment, the undercarriage of the vehicle started to smoke and flames could be seen, sending the passengers running. Privy to the knowledge that the display was just a flare, the fake officer hopped in the van and drove off with the money. Despite the massive investigation and some 110,000 suspects were questioned, no one was convicted for the crime.
