Armed Robbers & Prison..

The gang responsible for the Securitas heist have been sentenced to 15 years in prison. This is too lenient because most of the £53 million the gang stole is still missing. If they are released after 15 years they will still be young enough to enjoy the fruits of their crime, there should be no question of any of them ever being released until all the money is returned. Most of them are young enough for the prospect of being released to spend their millions to be an attractive one.

Isn't one of the gang still missing himself? Perheps that's where the money is....

Yes, I can't imagine that the rest of the gang will be thrilled leaving that one bloke in charge of £30 million while they serve out their sentences.

An acquaintance of mine was running his company's presence in Saudi Arabia. One of his employees was arrested for bringing in a shipload of booze for illegal sales. He made $25 Million out of his little enterprise despite being put in Saudi prison for five years.

When my acquaintance asked him why, he thought $5 Million a year was benefit enough.

Yeah I'd take 5 years n prison for a £25 million payoff. Maybe not in a Saudi prison though.
