Not a bad day's work

It took only 135 seconds for a pair of robbers to make off with over US$200,000 from a bank in Moscow.

The pair made fast work of the Moscow bank shortly after it opened on Sunday morning. They were so eager to do the job that they arrived at the bank an hour before it actually opened, so they had to wait at a bus stop for some time.

Once entering the bank, they easily forced the security guard to the ground and tied him up, then had the teller open the vault.

It was only a matter of seconds before they got their hands on the cash and were out the door.

The whole episode was caught on the bank's security cameras.

Moscow police immediately launched a massive man-hunt for the suspects and the car seen in the video.

Coincidentally, just two hours ahead of the bank robbery, police stopped a suspicious car with three men inside. They had masks in the trunk and one of them had a previous conviction record. They were released in the absence of evidence.

After the robbery occurred, all three were located in less than a day, and subsequently charged with the crime.
