  • I call him a liar he looks way to much in a good mood for a guy that just lost 2.6$ million!!! Plus one of the robbers had a GPS on his ankle this will end up on Americas dumbest criminals for sure.

    A liar? Maybe he was happy because some of the thieves were apprehended and he did not get hurt??

    I studied in criminology and sociology at university and have my degrees in those fields....(and before that I have a college degree in correctional services) my gut says liar!!! Why not use a brinks truck with armed security. I may be wrong but I look into his eyes and see he is full of it!!!

    Exactly Billy , id be pretty happy too that id easily identified one of the culprits , the rest will be easy.

    They WILL never find the gold it is way way gone by now this is a mafia thing for sure!!! The guy knew he would be caught and still did the hit he knew they would never ever find the gold. Bet you the gold is half across the globe by now and plus it is not traceable bullion either.

    No by no means a snap judgement!! The eyes don't lie and his attitude neither. No one would be stupid enough to be a accomplice with a guy with a ankle bracelet knowing he would be caught they where connected for sure to some higher crime group. The guy with the ankle bracelet knows he will be paid in due time so he did it knowing that for sure.

    The Mexican mafia is huge in the U.S and this smells nothing but a planed hit by them!! You have to be connected to get rid of 2.6$ in gold no matter what and to have the money cleaned afterwards as well. No stupid thug would have known about this come on how would some dumb crack head know this guy had 2.6$ million in gold without it just been a lucky hit. I mean how many people did this old man tell about his gold...can't be many.

    PS - "Planed"?

  • Great that he was able to walk away from something like this.

  • I am a prison psychologist and I see no overt behavior to suggest that the man is lying.
    Of course I wouldn't feel at all comfortable saying anything definitively, especially after only having an edited, 90 second video news story to go by.

    "Gut" feelings by the way are a very unreliable method of determining a person's truthfulness.

    I guess we will wait for the result and find out till then I believe my gut felling on this. Guy offers 15k to find 2.6$ million yeah the guy really wants to find the gold with that amount offered...lolll. Look I found O.J Simpsons glove!!!!

    Thats a lot of assumptions
  • JamesMurray

    Yes but the robbers where Mexican and so was he. Only mafia people get knowledge of this type of gold walking around on the streets not some dumb criminals that is for sure....they may have used dumb criminals to do the hit but the wizard behind the curtain is for sure no dumb person or persons.

    In the B&M where I hang out from time to time an OLD gentleman lurched in with more gold than this and it was very obvious what he was carrying. I am mafia now? image

    Lets go talk about coins maybe. We will see what develops with this story in due course.

    Well now we know how the robbers knew. The guy with the ankle braclet was picked out of a photo lineup so i dont think he "knew" he was going to get caught.



  • Then this robbers just got lucky I guess but we will see.

    Lucky in what way ? Being busted for armed robbery ? It's not luck if you know a guy is the courier for a gold company , they knew what he did for a living and they knew his movements,they knew he had the gold.Im not sure what armed robbery gets a person in Florida but if i were in a jail cell down there i wouldnt be feeling all that lucky at all.One thing i will agree on is i dont think they will recover the gold , id have it buried by now and wait to do my 20 years in the pen.

    If you purchased gold over a period of years, decades or whatever, it would take you many years to
    buy this much gold. Just for fun lets say the old man could afford an ounce a week and it averaged
    $1,000 per ounce. Hmmmmm, 2,600 ounces or 50 years of buying. Boy, that old man must have
    one heck of a paper trail.

    Unless he sold his home on the coast for 2.6m and took payment in gold!

    Story is sad but funny at the same time.

    Yep, just keep 2.6m in gold in your apartment.
