The New York Daily News is reporting that the NYPD has warned its ranks about what the paper describes as “‘Oceans 11’-style burglary gangs” who want to rob banks when they are closed for holidays — as they will be tomorrow for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Apparently, it’s prime time for burglars to get together and plan heists. But what if they are actually Ocean’s Twelve-style robbers? Or Ocean’s Thirteen guys?
According to the Daily News:
The bulletin warns that sophisticated crews, who rely on look-outs and monitor police frequencies, use torches and drills to cut through walls, roofs and even tunnel through neighboring buildings to access the bank vault.
