How about his hairstyle? Any facial hair? Other identifying features such as scars?

Why isn't it a time-lock safe?

You are too progressive with your obvious questions.;)

9 millions yens, not worth the knife assault.

Apologies, I'll work on it!

Agreed, especially if it's not your money.

One guy with a knife was able to bind the hands and feet of two guys? Was he holding the knife in his mouth? It sounds like a three-way split to me.

This happens really really often yet their way of storing the money overnight never changes. It's a way of paying off someone without having put the cash through the books

Hey buddy, can you NOT attack me or call the police while I tie up your friend here?

After that I'll tie you up as well, then no one has to get hut.

That would be great, thanks!
