Rolex and crime seem to go together like Red Bull and vodka. This evening, via the Courier Mail, we learn of two Australians teenage boys who inadvertently aroused suspicion by casually counting out 6,000 $5 bills at a Denver jewelry store to pay for a $30,000 Rolex. Sensing that something might be amiss, the sales assistant asked the boys to leave, and told them she was calling the police. After later confessing to robbing a nearby bank with air pistols and photographing themselves in a McDonald’s with the $170,000 they stole, the boys explained that they were attempting to convert the cash into jewelry in order to avoid suspicion. They probably would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for that meddling sales assistant.
Tune in next week while we continue to examine the twisted and complex minds of the criminally inane.
