A wise cop once told me “we win because the crooks are dumber than we are.”
This story proves that logic is spot on.
The man thought robbing a bank would be a piece of cake if he was invisible so he hired a sorcerer to make him disappear.
He then paid the guy five million Iranian rials (just over $400 US) and headed for the bank.
Once inside the dude ran from customer to customer grabbing money from them. It didn’t take long for those in the bank to put a whipping on the guy and hold him for Iranian police.
In what has to be one of the biggest understatements the would be crook told the court “I made a mistake. I understand now what a big trick was played on me.”
