New York City police officials are looking for a man who was said to have stolen a pot of gold from an armoured truck and escaped.


The crime did happen in September but the NYPD only released camera footage recently. According to the surveillance footage, the man was walking by the truck when he spotted the pot of $1.6million worth of gold flakes and grabbed it. It is believed that this was a crime of opportunity, as the man didn’t know what was even in the pot. Lucky day? Or Not?. 

One small problem for the thief is that the pot weighed 68pounds (31kg), and he can be seen taking a rest after running with it. #SomeoneNeedsMoreStamina.
