Sure, the cops are never going to figure it out… and yet it was so obvious of a possibility. He’s too eager, for no benefit, and of said supposed reputation. That just screams set-up. Any cop worth having around would have been suspicious beyond merely whether the situation worked out, especially sending an elite robber into a bank vault.
I would have had the guy tailed, and have given him orders not to leave the country. While that would not prevent her escape, both he, and the loot, would be held in safekeeping… and maybe her.
These two think far too much of their own intellect, and far too little of anybody else’s.
Quite a feat nonetheless. These two would make great spies for some government.
Sure, they have relevant skills, but they’d be pretty terrible at taking orders, and I doubt such jobs would provide many incentives they were interested in. Also, *way* too much work.
Yeah, much better to just arrange for them to be in some country you don’t much like and let their nature take its course. After all, crime is only bad if it happens to you! /s
