Bank robbers steal more than $4 million, buy suite at Hawks game

Friday March 27th, 2015

You don't need to be a criminal mastermind to figure out that if you're going to rob a bank, you may want to be careful with the money that you steal. Four Atlanta bank robbers recently showed that not everyone is aware of this. 

On Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that four individuals were being sent to federal prison for stealing more than $4 million from Bank of New York Mellon. One of the defendants worked at the bank, where he had access to client funds. 

Among the items the bandits purchased with their $4 million was a suite at an Atlanta Hawks game. 

If the robbers attended "Swipe Right Night" in January, we hope any potential matches swiped left.
