Watch the (Slowly Moving) Bucket

Neatoramanauts, think like a criminal. You've stolen important financial documents from a local store, and would like to exchange them for money. But you know that the money drop-off point would be swarming with cops. What to do?

Well, one crook had this brilliant idea involving a bucket. A slowly moving bucket:

A Grippo's official took a bank bag - filled with cut paper to resemble the size of paper money - and, as the note instructed, placed it in a bucket in a field behind a vacant business in the area.

Police hid and watched the bucket.

After about an hour, police suddenly saw the bucket begin to move and watched it go from the field into nearby woods.

Police raced into the woods and found Pence holding the bucket - which had attached fishing line to it - and the bank bag with the fake money inside.

I would get them to drop it off in a bucket over a sewer grating. Make sure you have your exit planned and you could be anywhere in the city quickly and easily. Padlock the grate behind you and you're away.

Don't let the cops have the time to monitor all the possible exits though...
