And, never to be seen again!

A little typo in the last sentence. ‘Block’ - black.

Moderator: Thank you. The typo has been fixed.

That's not much money to go to that much trouble and then also have to split it 3 ways,,, better off going for the big score and retiring, no?

"They stole 3 million yen in cash and then fled." They'll probably split the money three ways. Let's see if their crime will pay or not.

Probably an inside job, check his employee roster or former employees. They probably all fit that description though.

I do enjoy the description, "they were in their 20's" and "wearing white face masks" in the same paragraph. As if you can tell how old a person is who is completely covered up.

Happy to finally see the typically moronic criminals in Japan have began studying up on their craft and dressing in generic black clothing from head to toe, and covering their faces. Hopefully gloves were worn and talking kept to a minimum.
